Pounds and Pence
This presentation is cross-curricular and contains educational links to English, maths, history and citizenship/personal, social health and economic (PSHE)/personal and social education (PSE)/personal and social development (PSD).
The talk includes a film which covers the history and purpose of money and why prices change, and the Bank of England's role in keeping prices low and stable. Children will enjoy the upbeat style of the film and the funny scenarios, which explain the points in an accessible and entertaining way. They will be able to take a closer look at banknote security features using sheets of new banknotes worth thousands of pounds, and will have the chance to take part throughout.
