Our task in ICT this morning was to budget for a family holiday to anywhere in Europe. This gave the class lots of scope to go wherever they wanted to, using either Ryanair or Easyjet as the flight carriers. We had learned the basics about how to book flights, accommodation and car hire last week in Money Week, when the class were asked to budget for a holiday to Finland, so this represented a leap forward in terms of allowing each pair to actually explore and decide what appealed most to them.
The budget was £3000, which included flights for a family of four, accommodation in the country you cose to fly to and car hire, as well as considering how much money would be needed for the duration of the holiday as spending money. At the end, we shared our plans with each other, and heard of some tremendously diverse and creative ideas in which to spend (or not spend!) all of the available budget!
