The Bank of England is teaming up with the Beano to help teach primary school children about money.
Using characters like Dennis the Menace, Lord Snooty and the Numskulls, the bank said it is working with Britain’s longest running comic to educate youngsters about finance.
It has developed 12 lessons for pupils ages 5 to 11 which aim to give them the knowledge, skills and confidence to manage money.
BOE Governor Andrew Bailey said: “It will support teachers in giving young people a strong sense of the importance of economic and financial decisions.”
Emma Scott, chief executive of Beano Studios, said: “Beano has been engaging children for more than 80 years, and we love bringing that experience to the classroom.
“We’ve had fun producing these unique financial literacy lessons so kids can enjoy learning about money and gain necessary life skills.”
