Real Money

A financial awareness role play activity, created by Personal development and Future Choices Department at Newent Community School and Sixth From for key stage 4 students.

The aim of the game is to provide students with an opportunity to work in groups and consider issues around financial management. At the outset, students are given a job role; they remain in this role throughout the game.

In small groups, students eventually select a house to rent and look at financial issues surrounding independent living.

By the end of the session, students will have an understanding of pay-slips, individual household budgeting, savings, credit and debit and debt.
