Visit to the Metro Bank
Saturn class was treated to two visits by Metro Bank staff who explained about money, savings, interest, financial planning, borrowing, bank cards and spending. It was fascinating and many of the children already showed a keen interest in financial matters. They were praised for their descriptions of interest charged on a mortgage or loan, crypto currency knowledge, compound interest and how best to save. The following week, Saturn were invited to visit Metro Bank in Tunbridge Wells. The children peeped inside the safe room and found out all about safety deposit boxes – everyone wanted one. We watched a bank card being made in the special printing machine in the bank foyer and played guess the weight of the change in the change counting machine. Finally the children met Metro Man and were given some gifts to take home. Thank you Metro Bank.
