Year five pupils at Northwold Primary School in Northwold Road presented a play on Friday (January 21) that they had written themselves about how the workings of banks, budgeting and the economy.
A Wealth of Stages, which the pupils performed in front of family and friends, was the result of 10 workshops with arts charity Create and a visit to the Bank of England Museum in the City earlier this month.
Lorna Dyke, assistant headteacher at Northwold, said: “The children have developed their speaking and listening , writing, maths and creative thinking . They have gained self confidence and self esteem.
