2013 marks the fifth annual My Money Week, and this year we are thrilled to be working in partnership with Barclays to bring it to life! We are also extending our reach from England to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland for the first time, to make sure that the Week is the biggest and best yet!

Since 2009, pfeg have provided schools across the country with free resources, lesson plans, Activity Packs, competitions, national challenges, one to one consultancy support and a dedicated website for the highest profile and most recognised financial education initiative – My Money Week.

The response from schools, teachers and young people in the first and following years was phenomenal – the demand for resources, engagement and interest outstripped all expectations and the variety of activities and events that took place was amazing!

We have had the likes of The Saturdays, Sir Chris Hoy, and Tinchy Strider encouraging people to take part by being ambassadors and setting challenges for students. The Bank of England, The Royal Mint and the British Museum supported our first ever national schools competition – which had more than 6000 entries.

As with all pfeg initiatives, the Week is designed to be flexible and adaptable so that activities can be changed to meet the needs of individual schools. Hundreds of thousands of young people get involved in the run up to, and during the Week.

Schools have hosted fashion shows and fetes, taken part in gardening projects, debates, young peoples’ parliaments, peer mentoring projects, community economy projects and used maths, English, drama, PSHE education, citizenship, enterprise and geography to deliver excellent financial education.

This week the children are aiming to raise as much money as possible so all of Key Stage 1 and 2 can go to the cinema on Friday morning. We have booked a private screening of ‘Epic the movie’ and we will be travelling there and back by coach.

In order for this very special event to take please we need your help. A consent form will be sent home tomorrow.

 

The children have come up with lots of exciting money raising ideas which we will tell you about daily so watch this space. Also children can raise money at home by carrying out jobs. This money can be donated towards the special event too. If they bring their money into school there will be a purse displayed for them to add their amount onto in each class. We will keep a daily total to see which children are working the hardest at home. A special prize will be awarded to the class which raises the most money.
