In our weekly news assembly on Monday we talked about the question 'Does money make people happy?' The childen had lots of ideas and many of them recognised that there are (at least) two sides to every argument and that the question wasn't as black and white as you might first think. In Tuesday, in our SMSC assembly we talked about the things we valued and then linked back to the question of money and happiness. It was reassuring to hear many of the children arguing that the things that we really value, like health, family, friends and happiness are often not linked to money.
Some children took on the challenge of writing down some of their ideas and thoughts at home. Some of the results are below for you to enjoy.
