Building financial skills to make decisions about money

The tools on this page are designed to help young people aged 7 to 11 develop an understanding of the decisions that we make around money, our needs and our wants.

Making wise choices: The Expedition

Before embarking on a trip to the Antarctic, there’s a few things your children need to do. By building on their current understanding of money, their task will be to decide what they actually need as they work to a budget. By thinking carefully about how to spend their money, they’ll be well equipped for their Antarctic adventure.
