We have been working very hard in class on our competition entries for the The Future Bank Competition, which closes tomorrow. To enter the competition, we had to think of and present what money and banking might look like in the future.

And that wasn’t even the tricky bit – we had to think of a really creative and interesting way to present our ideas!

To help us, Miss Lavars gave us an Assessment Rubric to use, as this is the way she was going to judge our entries to decide who would enter the competition to represent our class! We learnt all about what rubrics, criteria and lots of other things actually meant. We used these rubrics to give ourselves a score first, and then submitted our entries to Miss Lavars for a final mark!
