Counting on Money & The Cost of Money

Nationwide Education

These programmes are part of Nationwide Education, a free online education resource provided by Nationwide Building Society, aiming to help children build life skills in money and money management.

For ages 4-7 there are two interactive storybooks, and a practical money activity, introducing concepts of money, saving, budgeting and sharing. For ages 7-11 there is a fun interactive board game and for all ages there are accompanying fact, work sheets and word glossaries, to help pupils develop their confidence and knowledge of financial concepts.

End-of-module quizzes for both age groups also test pupil understanding, rewarding them with a certificate.
