Creating Your Own Currency!

Good morning Year 6! I had technical issues yesterday, so I have posted PSHE today. I hope you all had a good weekend! Today, you will be creating your own banknote. First rule of the activity: BE CREATIVE

What is currency? Currency is the official money of a country. It consists of paper money and coins.

In the past, people use to trade animals, jewellery, food and other goods and services when money did not exist. We have found some clever ways of solving many of the problems of trading. Take a look at some modern coins and notes. They are easy to identify, fit easily in your pockets and last a long time. The wide range of coins and notes from there 1p coin to the £50 note – means that we can make up any number of different amounts. The detailed design allows for everyone- including blind and partially-sighted people to identify coins and notes. 

Activity: Think of these questions as you design your currency:

If you owned your own island what would the name of your currency be? If you want to, you can change everything – the size, shape, pictures, colours, paper and security features! It’s up to you!

What will you put into the design to remind people of the things we can be proud of? You can choose who or what you like (but give a reason for your choice).

How will you make sure that everyone can identify the note?                                             What sort of material will you use – paper or something else?

Please post your comments on the blog. Have Fun!

Money Matters 11/05/20


PSHE – Money Matters

Research – Where Does Money Come From?

Currency is the money that a country uses. In the UK, it’s the pound. Different countries have different currencies.

  • U.S. Dollar (USD)
  • European Euro (EUR)
  • Japanese Yen (JPY)
  • British Pound (GBP)
  • Swiss Franc (CHF)
  • Canadian Dollar (CAD)
  • Australian/New Zealand Dollar.
  • South African Rand (ZAR)

You can convert money from one currency to another so you can buy things if you go on holiday abroad for example.


  Questions About Money are:

  •  Where does our money come from?
  •  How does money make you feel?
  • What can we use our money for?
  • How can we look after our money?


  • Create a poster with five top tips about money. This can be something you could share with your family. 
  • Look for bank and savings account adverts on the TV or
    in newspapers and magazines. What information do the adverts provide?

Good morning year 6!

I hope you all had a nice weekend.

Rights & Responsibilities of a citizen

Human rights are “rights and freedoms to which all humans are entitled.”

A right that is believed to belong justifiably to every person.

The rights people are entitled to simply because they are human beings, irrespective of their citizenship, nationality, race, ethnicity, language, gender, sexuality, or abilities.


  • Right: I have a right to feel safe.
  • Right: I have a right to speak freely and express my ideas and opinions.

 ‘What are the responsibilities that come with rights?

Right: I have a right to feel safe
Responsibility: I have a responsibility to behave in a way that will keep myself and others safe.

Right: I have a right to speak freely and express my ideas and opinions.
Responsibility: I have a responsibility to be respectful of other people’s ideas and opinions even if they are different to mine.

Make a list of other occasions when rights need to be balanced by responsibility.
