  1. Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year! We started 2016 in a primary school in Woodford Green. A lively group of forty staff from several different schools in the area led to a very interesting day. In the morning we looked at the skills children need to develop for effective philosophical enquiry, the role of warm up games and the format for an enquiry. In the afternoon the time was divided between looking at stimuli, developing a thinking class environment and ways of using mini philosophy enquiries.

    ” Excellent, engaging, interesting.”

    “Informative, clearly presented … lots of opportunities to ask questions.”

    ” Thorough and very accessible.”
