Children at Hereward Primary School, Loughton, spent a morning with peers from different year groups learning about money and financial management during their termly ‘Magic Moments Morning’.
The pupils across the school learnt valuable lessons about sources of money and its uses, as well as how to make simple financial decisions related to saving and spending.
Representatives from Santander also visited Hereward to provide workshops to pupils.
Branch director Andrew Cull expressed how successful the morning was and how engaged and polite the children were.
Year 5 pupil Alex said: “The morning was so interesting. I have learnt how to be more responsible with money I am given or earn and I know the difference between wants and needs.”
Mathematics Co-ordinator Steph Knezic said: “It was a fun and enriching morning. Children were able to understand that the prudent use of money is relevant by co-operatively participating in a range of activities related to money.”
