Bank of England
Organised by Lou
Visit to the Bank of England Museum and also choose between two presentations. We have been previously and their presentations are very engaging.
Pounds and Pence for children aged 7-13 years. ***THIS PRESENTATION IS NOW FULL***
“The Pounds and Pence film covers the history and purpose of money, why prices change and the Bank of England’s role in keeping prices low and stable. Children will enjoy the upbeat style of the film and the humorous scenarios which explain the points in an accessible and entertaining way. Using sheets of new banknotes worth thousands of pounds, children will examine the security features on these genuine notes and be encouraged to play an active part throughout the presentation.”
Keeping on an Even Keel for children aged 13-16 years.
This is aimed at GCSE level and would be suiltable for anyone studying economics or business studies or with a keen interest in monetary policy. This is NOT a “beginners” level presentation and prior knowledge will be assumed.
“A short film that uses nautical metaphor and animation to explain the Bank’s roles and responsibilities in an accessible, imaginative and entertaining way. The film is divided into seven short modules, which provide a simple guide to the Bank’s monetary policy and financial stability roles. The modules explain why low inflation and a safe and stable financial system matter to the UK economy and how the Bank contributes to achieving them.”
There is an overall capacity limit for both of these presentations. Preference will be given to children in the right age-ranges for each presentation. (further information to come)
Under 7s are still able to go into the museum (which is free of charge)
Please note that there is a £1.50 refundable deposit per person for the presentations (which will be donated to charity in the event that you cancel/don’t attend/don’t do the workshop on the day and your places go unfilled). This is because the bank reserves the right to cancel a visit if the numbers on the day fall below what was booked.
