PSHE Lessons in money sense - created by Experian
Please follow the link to find a great interactive resource which is deep and richly detailed. It is aimed at teaching 'money sense' which is a component of the PSHE curriculum. The link will show a map of a fictional town, with stories, games and puzzles which aim to educate children about things like pay packets, bank accounts, pocket money, and moral decisions.
Please spend some time exploring this fantastic free resource.
Scratch IT Coding Skills
As part of the computing curriculum, your child should already be familiar with the Scratch coding software. What is great about Scratch as a learning resource is that it can be operated on your web browser without a login or subscription.
Your child will have had a number of formal lessons using this software to program and code animations and simple games.
By using the tutorials in the link your child can take their learning further. The tutorial plays as a window inside the coding area and has a short video, and arrows at the side which break down the instructions into simple stages.
This resource is great for learner exploration and free thinking skills. We hope your child enjoys it.
