Our Year 5 class have been impressed us with their creativity and innovative ideas this week by taking part in the Young Money Challenge which is a national competition open to all 4-19 year olds in the UK. The Challenge is an annual programme that encourages children and young people to consider the connection between money management and wider issues affecting local and global communities. This year’s theme is money management and health and wellbeing! The children explored how healthy choices can impact their bodies, minds and finances. The children worked in teams to create something that helps people to take care of their money and their health and wellbeing.
Maple Class have written this report on the event:
In Year 5 we had a day to remember. We competed in the Young Money Challenge which we called Dragons’ Den. The challenge was to create something to help people take care of their money and their health and well-being. We worked in teams and used our creativity and growth mind sets to be patient, to listen to others, and to work to achieve our creations. Maple Class put in a lot of hard work and never gave up. We had a lot of fun and really enjoyed working in our teams. At the end we presented our creations to each other. We are all very proud.
