Kick starting philosophy

Three schools brought together nearly 50 staff members for an Inset training day on Monday to kick start philosophy in the classroom.

With a large group we start the day with everyone working together which can get noisy at times! Later we break into smaller groups for practical work. Here is what one headteacher commented:
“Fantastic, spot on. Excellent activities. Fantastic, will certainly be incorporating into whole school.”

Other teachers commented: “Totally appropriate and really showed us how we could use philosophy in the classroom. Very useful. I am looking forward to seeing P4C in my school.”

“Very informative, excellent ideas given. A safe learning environment, great warm up ideas for the session and eye opener to how this can be used in the classroom…”
