MoneySense is a free financial education programme for 5-18 year olds. The programme, which has been run by NatWest, Royal Bank of Scotland and Ulster Bank for the past 25 years, provides activities, games and resources for students, teachers and parents to help teach children about money.
What is MoneySense Mondays?
The programme’s latest resource - MoneySense Mondays - has been launched to support parents across the UK who are ‘home schooling’ while their children are staying home from school.
Each Monday, MoneySense lessons are taught by a NatWest/Royal Bank of Scotland/Ulster Bank Community Banker and a schoolteacher; the interactive lessons are streamed in real-time on Facebook Live and can be joined by parents and their children from their homes.
The live element gives parents and children the opportunity to interact and participate in the activities. Lessons are split into two sessions:
- 30 mins for Key Stage 1 students (age 5 - 8)
- 30 mins for Key Stage 2 students (age 8 - 12)
