This week the children of St Thomas More were given responsibility for using their business acumen to raise money for the school. Both Year 5 classes really engrossed themselves in creating profitable ideas using an initial investment to make profit from their ideas.
Lots of money was raised for the school and we are happy to say that 5M won the friendly competition of raising the most money as an individual class! Some promising future entrepreneurs in the making!
Santander—Banking, Saving and Budgeting Workshop
Year 5 were happy to have Santander Bank in for a workshop teaching the children how to use banks and the importance of saving and budgeting money. The children were engrossed by the activities and found that it taught them many lessons for how to use their money.

Children in year 5 invited their parents in to take part in the new approach to maths St Thomas More has adopted! Parents enjoyed the challenge and amount of activities it provided children.
