Barnabas in Schools

As part of our work this term on Money, Y6 participated in a workshop with ‘Barnabas in Schools’ exploring the question – ‘What is money worth?’ We looked at the following questions –

  • How do we view money?
  • How do we value people and objects?
  • What makes something valuable?
  • How do we make wise choices?

We used Bible stories to think about our responses and ideas. We came to the conclusion that there is more to life than money!
