Listen to interviews in 4 Blue. Children talk about what they have learnt during Money week and why money is important. Children also discussed whether high cost means a higher quality product. This was our ‘big’ question in year 4.
After visiting Sainsbury’s with a ‘tight’ budget, children bought a range of products for different brands. Some were expensive brands and others were cheaper.
Next, 4 Blue carried out a taste test to find out if expensive products tasted better than cheaper brands. The results were certainly interesting!
4 Blue also looked at how people earn money and how different jobs may earn different amounts. Children realised that to have a well paid job, people often work hard and put in a lot of hours.
