Overview

My Money Week

My Money Week is the national themed activity week which pfeg runs annually in June. There are loads more free resources, exciting ideas, videos and competitions all on our My Money Week microsite.

Year 6 pupils were challenged to design, cost and create a meal using fresh and locally produced produce and compare the price of this to the price of purchasing all the ingredients from a supermarket.

To do this they worked with members of the local allotment society and bought produce in local shops and online.

The supporting video allows you to follow the pupils on their journey from growing and harvesting vegetables, to investigating supermarket prices, shopping locally, and costing and cooking a meal.
