Learning about how people living in poverty might make money
Today in PSHE, we were learning about how people in poverty make money. We worked in teams to make paper bags and give them to our boss (Miss Mckenzie) for a very small sum of 'money'. We all worked very hard to make the paper bags look perfect, but found that a days work only got us somewhere between 80p and £1.20 between our whole group. We talked about if we thought this was fair and if we were able to support a family on this wage.
