ASB getWise visit on Friday 9 May

Vane visited our classroom and had the children totally captivated for a full 45 minutes. He talked to the children about money. We loved it when Vane dressed up as Captain Cashtanstic. He made us part of his superhero team and he had secret words like "munches mash".
He showed us the coins and notes that we use for money in New Zealand. We learned what the colours of all New Zealand notes are and we also learned that notes are worth more than coins. 
Vane told us the difference between needs and wants. He said that needs are the things that we need to have to live, like food, water and a house to live in. Wants are the things that we don't need (have to have) in order to live. He encouraged us to save our money for things that we might like to buy later. Check out the book that our awesome teacher aide Emma made about Vane's visit:
