Year 6 have yet again commenced our training to be Money Mentors. 4 children have been trained to deliver lessons to Year 5 in Class 10 about budgeting money within a household and the dangers of debt. Another 4 different children have been trained to deliver lessons to Year 6 in Class 11 to build on last year's lessons and, in particular, looking at the range of salaries for different professions and jobs.
Mr Souter from 'Debt Aware' has been so impressed with our commitment to the programme that he has recommended that St. Peter's should aim to become an accredited school.
Benjamin, Chenille, Leah and Matthew have taught Class 11 about professions and salaries. We explored which professions are highly paid and why other jobs are not paid as much. We were surprised at how much doctors earn but realised they are highly trained with the best qualifications and have lots of responsibility. There was much discussion and in the evaluations most children said the teaching team was great and that the lesson did not need to be improved.
New Money Mentors came forward to be trained and will then deliver new modules to us. Great job team!
