Learning and Teaching Scotland have launched a new Gaelic website – Leis an Airgead – which houses resources accompanying the translation of the book, On the Money.
There are four stories in this book, On the Money, written by Theresa Breslin, Jonathan Meres, Nicola Morgan and Alison Prince. The stories all focus on issues of financial responsibility for children.
Numeracy and literacy are combined in an innovative way that hasn’t previously been implemented in Scotland. On the Money is a free resource which will be distributed to schools throughout Scotland.
Standard Life, Learning and Teaching Scotland and Scottish Book Trust worked in partnership to produce a book of stories for primary school children to help them become financially informed and aware and to aid their growth into financially capable adults. This will give pupils an opportunity to engage with key financial concepts, and to do this in a very creative and enjoyable way.
