Fantastic school banking opportunity!
Exciting news! To tie in with the new maths curriculum focus on maths in the real world, banking group HBSC have opened a mini branch-for key stage two pupils only, at St. Saviour’s Primary school. This bank is not only for our pupils it’s actually run by the pupils themselves. In conjunction with Mrs Sandra Howe from HBSC, year 5 pupils have been organising their very own banking sessions. Pupils who have opened saving accounts can deposit their pocket money each session-hoping to save their money; any amount from £1 upwards can be saved. As a super reward for opening a savings account, all pupils receive a fabulous mini safe money box, which they can then take home. Don’t forget your combinations children!
If you are interested in your key stage 2 child opening an account, please enquire at the school office.
Mini business tycoons swapped the traditional classroom for the boardroom as St Saviour's hosted it's very first Business and Enterprise Week.
History was made in a pulsating week, as young entrepreneurs put their business skills to the test.
The project brief was simple; design a product, make the product and sell the product at our Enterprise Day. All on a budget of £10! The business class that made the most money would win the coveted prise, a class adventure day.
This amazing day involved the whole of the local community, children, parents and local shopkeepers. The total raised that day reached over £1000! . . . . And RSS was the winning Class! Council decided how the money should be used and chose to invest in real estate and brought out Lego Construction!
Pupils of St Saviour's enjoyed a full week of fun and activities relating to money and Maths. Every year group participated by creating their own merchandise to sell at St Saviour's Market (in the playground). Despite the rain and miserable weather everyone had a great time and made approximately £1,000, which was kindly donated to 'Islamic Relief'.
