Caol pupils shop around and cash in on fun week of learning
CAOL Primary School pupils have been enjoying a week of activities and trips as they learn about money.
Depute head teacher Sharon MacDonald said: ‘Money Week has been a fantastic initiative to build partnerships with our local community. Every class has had visitors and been out on a trip. Learning about money benefits the children.’
Pupils of all ages have been taking part, with some going on trips to local shops where they have been using money in a real life context.
Primary one pupils visited Morrisons where they looked at prices and special offers, learned about healthy eating at the fish and butcher counters, had a shot on the tills, had a look in the warehouse and had a healthy snack in the canteen.
Other classes have been learning how to budget and some have been learning about earning a living and the world of work.
Primary 4/5 had a Dragon’s Den style competition where they had to design piggy banks.
Aaron Laverty, P1, has fun getting up close to some of the seafood sold at Morrisons fish counter as part of Caol Primary School’s Money Week.
