My Money Week 2017

My Money Week 2017

Last term, Galliard celebrated My Money Week where pupils took part in various activities and learnt about the importance of managing money effectively. Some pupils were given a budget to manage throughout the week and had to make financial decisions about earning, spending and saving.

The whole school also entered the national My Money Week competition where Key Stage 1 pupils produced some ‘Money Moment’ pictures which explained how money made them feel in chosen situations and Key Stage 2 pupils worked in small groups to compose and record songs about managing money effectively. Mr Okine accompanied some of these songs by playing the keyboard.

Congratulations to Tyler Pheasant, Sean Johnson, Trey Bascoe and Owayne Montaque in 6C who were the overall winners of the competition and will be attending an awards ceremony and performing their song at the House of Commons in October 2017! WELL DONE!

The lyrics to their song are as follows:

Money is for saving not for craving,
If you want something, you better start saving,
‘cause we don’t always get what we want,
‘cause we don’t always get what we want.

We can’t always get what we want,
‘cause money doesn’t grow on trees,
So save up your money and pay your fees.

When you earn money, you feel very proud,
But when you don’t, you feel kinda down.
Save up your money and boost your skills,
So later in life you can pay your bills.

And that’s why money is for saving not for craving,
And if you want something you better start saving,
‘cause we don’t always get what we want,
‘cause we don’t always get what we want.

Stop spending money on trash,
‘cause honestly it’ll go in a flash.
Start by saving money,
Then all of your days will be sunny.

Don’t get caught in the net of debt,
Or you’ll start having regrets.
Start depositing, stop withdrawing,
So your bank balance will go soaring.

Money is for saving not for craving,
If you want something, you better start saving,
‘cause we don’t always get what we want,
‘cause we don’t always get what we want.

Money is for saving not for craving,
If you want something, you better start saving,
‘cause we don’t always get what we want,
‘cause we don’t always get what we want.

By Tyler, Owayne, Sean and Trey 6C
