We’re really excited to bring you our updated Money Matters Course, developed in association with Children’s University
What is the Money Matters course?
It’s a free to download, printable set of activity sheets. The course is open to all, but it’s ideal for 7 to 12 years old. The activities start off quite basic and get more complex as your progress. As ever, you’ll be the best judge of what level they’re at.
Why have we created it?
We created the course, starting with this Rookie Module, to help kids learn about money matters and develop confidence in money.
And best of all, if your kids complete the course, we’ll send them a shiny personalised certificate for their bedroom wall (or mantle piece ?).
What lessons will the kids learn about money?
The course covers the following topics:
- What money is and where it comes from
- How money is used
- Coin recognition
- Ways to earn money
- How Banks work
- Financial terms
- What Interest is and why it’s good
Where can I get the kids' activity sheet?
Right here. There’s one which uses dollars and dimes and one with pennies and pounds, so just choose whichever is best for you. Don’t worry, the lessons are the same…
Developed in partnership with Children's University
Described by the Sunday Times as ‘The University of Fun’, Children’s University is a charity that works in partnership with schools to develop a love of learning in children. They do this by encouraging and celebrating participation in extra-curricular activities in and outside of school. The impact of these activities is proven to be positive which is why they’re committed to creating a level playing field of opportunity and opening up access to children of all backgrounds.
