During the autumn term Primary 6 worked collaboratively to study the Financial Education experiences and outcomes as outlined in the Curriculum for Excellence. Through exploring ethical trading, we began to understand how people’s basic financial needs are the same around the world. We identified essential banking services and explored how to budget for life. We discussed different ways to pay for items we needed or wanted, considering the benefits and risks of each method.
