YORKSHIRE Building Society has launched six online lessons of its financial education programme Money Minds, to school children.

Due to new national lockdown measures leading to the closure of schools, the Society has released two Key Stage 1 (aged 5-7) digital Money Minds lessons on the topics of ‘Keeping Money Safe’ and ‘Wants and Needs’ and two Key Stage 2 (aged 8-11) lessons on the topics of ‘Vacation Venture’ and ‘Project Party’ to teach them about the importance of budgeting.

The Society has also launched two new Key Stage 3 (aged 11-14) digital lessons for students on the topics of ‘Bills and Budgets’ and ‘Project Profit’ to teach them about the importance of budgeting and being financially resilient.

Money Minds is a free programme consisting of a series of activities and projects designed to promote discussion and learning. The video lessons should take between 25-40 minutes to complete and are presented by colleagues from the Society.
