My Money Week Resources

Resources & Activities

Check out the 2019 My Money Week resources now! 

For 2019 we created a brand new set of digital video resources to help your pupils explore a variety of financial decisions. 

Primary pupils can explore their feelings and attitudes towards spending and saving by making decisions on behalf of Max who is planning a day out through the primary videos. 

Secondary students consider key concepts including borrowingpeer pressure and value for money by making decisions on behalf of Sophie who is attending a festival through the secondary videos

The videos are accompanied by a comprehensive set of Teaching Materials including 2 ready-to-teach lesson plans focusing on saving and a number of activities exploring key themes from the videos which can be used flexibly as assembly, whole school or classroom activities and can be easily tailored to the age and ability of your pupils. 

*To play the videos you will need access to the internet and YouTube, ideally the latest version of the browser you are using (IE, Chrome, Firefox etc) and you will need JavaScript and cookies enabled for everything to work as it should.

You can still access the 2018 video resources, and the accompanying Teaching Materials which include suggestions for delivering the videos in assembly, tutor or lesson time, lesson plans which can be used to explore some of the topics in more detail, as well as a host of further ideas, resources and support available to you.

In 2018 primary pupils explored raising and saving money and charitable giving by making decisions on behalf of the school council featured in the 2018 primary videos.

Secondary students considered mobile phones, insurance and risk by making decisions on behalf of the young people featured in the 2018 secondary videos.

We would love to hear what you did for My Money Week so let us know by tweeting @YoungMoneyEdu using the hashtag #MyMoneyWeek.

You can also still access all of the materials from previous years, including the student facing newspapers and teachers’ notes, and the 2015 Weekly Planners and you’ll find a whole host of further resources and activities in the Resource Hub that you might find useful and inspiring to take your My Money Week even further.
