P6 – Budgeting

P6 have been applying their mathematical skills to real-life problems this week through learning how to create a well-organised, labelled budget.

Each pair was given a budget of £2000 to pay rent on a house of their choice, buy food of their choice and any extras including cinema trips or games consoles to name a few. They also had to remember to put a certain percentage of their money into savings and could use coupons to receive money off specific items.

It was important that they worked together and compromised to stay within their budget as this was a lot trickier than it initially looked!
