In our PSHE lesson this week we started to think about money and what it is for. This linked nicely to our maths lessons where we have also been learning about money; recognising coins and counting and making amounts of money.
We decided money is very important because you need it to buy lots of different things. We had a class discussion and these were our ideas:
- You can get money by having a job.
- You might get money by doing chores at home.
- You might get some pocket money from your parents.
- Sometimes you get money as a present.
The children discussed what they spent their money on. Most of them said when they have money they spend it on toys, sweets, new things and games.
We then discussed what adults spend their wages on:
- Gas and electricity
- Phones and internet
