Today Your Child Learned...

Dear Parent & Guardian, 
We are excited to share that your child has completed the following PSHE lesson. Check out our overview and top tips to support their development...

Today’s PSHE Lesson

Banks (Why Banks Are Important And All About Bank Cards)

Many of us use cards or banking Apps when purchasing items. More than 30% of us leave our homes without taking cash, showing how reliant we have become on bank cards and technology. Having a bank account to keep our cash safe has been the preferred method for many years however, now we’re ditching cash for cards, we need to be aware that keeping these valuable cards safe is essential too.

What We Covered In The PSHE Lesson

Here’s what we went through today...

  • The names of common banks in the UK like NatWest, Barclays, Lloyds, Bank of Scotland and more.
  • What a typical bank card looks like and how important it is to keep these safe.
  • Never sharing personal information like your bank card PIN numbers or security numbers.

How You Can Help From Home

Here’s what you can talk about during dinner...

  • Show your child some bank cards that you have and explain to them what the card has written on it and why.

Go Above & Beyond 

Here are some other ideas to support your childs PSHE lessons...

  • Ask your child if they can name any of the common banks in the UK. 
  • Talk about the banks that you use and which services they offer you. 
  • Talk about a typical bank card and what the numbers mean on the cards. 
  • Explain that in order to use a bank card, there has to be some money in the bank account, discuss what happens if there isn’t enough money in the account and the card is used to pay for something. 
  • Talk about interest, being overdrawn, fees and debt. 
  • Keep your bank cards safe and explain to your child how valuable these are and how thieves can use your PIN number or card information to commit crimes or identity theft.

When it comes to your child’s development, teachers and parents are better together! By aligning our goals and education techniques, we can better realise our vision of positively preparing your child for their future.

The pupils at our school are really enjoying the lifewise scheme. The scheme is very staff-friendly and easy to monitor. More staff are now teaching lifewise as a consequence and all the DfE statutory guidance (+more) is covered. The staff at lifewise are extremely professional. As it is a digital platform, lessons are constantly being up-dated and improved.

Lifewise is a fantastic tool to use. It is easy and clear to navigate and as well as in class we have used Lifewise during remote learning sessions, whilst in lockdown. I would thoroughly recommend this 'wellbeing session' tool to any school. It is exceptional.

Lifewise was so helpful for my online ELSA sessions. The format gave the children the chance to express their emotions. They loved the quiz and enjoyed the conversation.
