Year 6 Bank Visit

Over the last few weeks, Metro Bank have been visiting 6 Dove and 6 Silver to educate the pupils about money sense, budgeting and savings. The children found it very interesting and have learnt lots of new vocabulary linked to banking, such as ATM, safety deposit, interest and bank vault. For our final session, we were invited to Metro Bank in Edgware to see these things in real life. We saw the 'Magic Money Machine' (which counts your loose coins for free) and their special printer which can print you a new bank card in minutes! They even let us look inside the bank vault where people have their safety deposit boxes! It was a lovely experience for 6 Dove and 6 Silver and the children were really excited to receive a Metro Bank goody bag and money box to help kick-start their saving.
