Lesson 2: Pupils learn about saving money  and how to keep it safe


  • understand why people might want to save their money
  • can say how it feels to save for something you really want

Lesson 3: Pupils learn about the different jobs people do


  • know that there are a range of jobs that people can do
  • recognise that both men and women are able to do a range of jobs

We will have a continuing focus on British Values:

  • democracy
  • the rule of law
  • individual liberty
  • mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith


These values are embedded throughout the curriculum in Year 1 and we focus on different values in each topic.
