Key Stage 1
This lesson is designed to help children understand the difference between something we ‘need ‘in order to survive and something we ‘want’ but which isn’t essential. It introduces the idea that sometimes we have to make difficult choices because we can’t always afford everything we want. It also explains that some things we value, like personal or sentimental items, don’t cost money. The children explain the reasons for their choices, orally and in writing.
