What a Wonderful World

Malachi- Here is the music and lyrics for our class assembly next Friday. Please practise as often as you can.

 

Lyrics

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They’re really saying I love you

I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more than I’ll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world

Bank of England Trip

Malachi visited the Bank of England today to attend a workshop called Pounds & Pence. It provided a range of stimulating resources that encouraged pupils to think about money and prices.

 

Here is what we learnt on our trip. Bank of England looks after all of the high street street banks such as Natwest, Barclay’s etc. In addition to this, it is in the Bank of England premises that paper money is created, everything from £5 – £50. Since last September they government changed their money policy and have been producing £5 notes using polymer so that money has a longer lifespan.

 

Previously paper money lasted about a year but with the introduction of polymer the lifespan of paper notes is expected to last seven times this. Many security measures are put in place so currency isn’t forged such as a see-through window; gold foil on the front and silver on the back; and raised print, among others. Additionally, Winston Churchhill on back and the current queen (Queen Elizabeth) is on front. In the UK, bank notes are different sizes, easily measured against the index finger, are different colours, which makes its value easily identifiable by blind people. The last £1 was printed in 1984.

 

Every day, 5 million bank notes are made and the same recycled. The money, which is recycled, is shredded down into dwarf which means it is made into a brick and sold as compost.

Malachi also discussed how we pay for things and how money has evolved over the years with people now paying for items by using debit card, credit card, apple pay, pay pal etc..

Children also learned how interest works when borrowing or saving money. They also discussed low and high interest rates and the need for interest rates to control inflation.

 

After the workshop the children got to explore the museum and their task was to find out key facts about banking during World War 2 and the Victorian Era.
