Barclays LifeSkills - Making the Most of Money

Work Inspiration and Preparation Provided by Barclays LifeSkills with Business in the Community

This lesson focuses on value for money and the ways that products in shops can be promoted, helping children start to become critical consumers. Pupils combine their maths and money skills to work out what will give them the best value for money. The activity also includes a challenge which helps to develop the core transferable skill of creativity, focusing on different persuasive advertising techniques so pupils can evaluate what would make them more likely to buy something.

 

By the end of the lesson pupils will be able to:

Feel confident and in control of their financial situation
Understand why we should all be critical consumers and think carefully about how we use our money
Understand why making informed decisions will help make the most of the money they have
