Financial literacy

Two teachers named Nikki and Sigred told Room 10 about financial literacy. What is financial literacy? It is about saving money. Saving money is buying things that you need for yourself and what is good. There was a poster that was talking about reducing expenses. A girl was talking about what she needs and what she does not need and we had to sort out what was her expenses and what things she did not need. What is financial responsibility? It is being a good borrower. What is identity? It is the government and non-government things, like birth certificate, work card, passport, driver's licence, that tell who we are. My favourite part I learnt about was how to save money so I can achieve more when I am older.


  1. Hi Mary I love Your thank you letter to Nikki and Sigred.

  2. Hi Mary!

    My name is Rachel and I am running the Winter Learning Journey programme this holiday. We are having a great time blogging and I really hope that you will consider joining us. It's really easy and fun :)

    To join, all you have to do is log onto the Winter Learning website, click on the "Weekly Activities" tab, scroll down and choose an activity that interests you. You then blog about it on your blog site and I will read it, comment and give you points. You'll earn a certificate and a badge and, if you one of the 'Top 3 bloggers' you will also earn a great prize at the end of the holiday!

    I'll check back in a couple of days to see if you've chosen to take up the challenge and join the Winter Learning Journey programme.

    Hope to see you online this holiday :)

    Cheers, Rachel
