Our free online resources "Fun To Save" and "Saving Squad" will entertain children whilst assisting parents and teachers in the art of generating fiscal awareness.
Fun to Save teaches children aged 5 - 7 years the core principles of money and the benefits of saving.
Fun to Save is a safe place where children can have lots of fun while they learn about different aspects of money and ways to save.
Playing money orientated games encourages children to earn points, save up these points, and then use them to 'get stuff', such as colouring in sheets, stickers for an online sticker album, accessories for their chosen character and desktop wallpaper.
As well as games to play there are useful suggestions for activities for parents to do with the child away from the computer as well as lesson plans for teachers based on the UK & Scottish Curriculums.
Saving Squad is an exciting new online resource, designed to teach 7-11 year olds the core principles of money and the benefits of saving.
It is a free website, where children can explore a fun virtual world and solve a variety of realistic money related problems, improving their numeracy and financial capability.
The delightful characters and points element will help motivate children to become confident and successful learners and develop an understanding of how and why we save. The virtual bank teaches them about different types of money and the chip and pin system mirrors how things are bought in the real world.
Look out for the cool downloadables, full of ideas on saving water and energy in the home and making new things from old which will help you as a family to save money!
Each activity is supported by activities for parents to do with their child as well comprehensive lesson plans and visually stimulating worksheets, developed by teachers for teachers that can be put to simple use in the classroom.
