As part of our PSHE curriculum, High View held a Money Week in July. During this week, the children learned about the different coins and currencies, the role money plays in their lives, how to manage money and developed their understanding of credit, debt, tax and interest.
In addition to this, each class were given £5 to run an 'enterprise' project and make their £5 grow!
So far our school profit total is £329.60! Well done everyone! All profits made are going towards a memorial for Mrs Parkin, who we will never forget!
Take a look at some of the great work produced by our High View children.
Year 2 children used their art and design technology skills to plan and make a dreamcatcher that they were given the opportunity to sell. They were very impressive and sold well.
Year 3 scored high with their profits by holding a penalty shootout competitions at play times. The children had great fun scoring as many goals as possible in one minute and the winners were able to take home a prize.
Year 4 got busy with their baking skills and sold some delicious sugary treats after school in their Bake Sale. They learned about the importance of advertising as well as budgeting and pricing.
Year 5 ran their own stalls at the Summer Fair. 5JW had the idea of buying 'millions' sweets with their £5 and holding a competition for customers to guess how many there were altogether in the container. 5EN created a very popular fairground game, knocking the tins over! The top scorer won a prize!
In lessons, Year 5 also looked at the different ways we can buy things. The children were introduced to the concept of cash, credit cards, debit cards and loans and the terms debt and interest. The children were given the mathematical challenge of working out how much items would cost if they included interest. We learned that paying with cash upfront is the best way to avoid debt and incurs no interest!
