Philosophy for children.

We use P4C to provide our children with constructive language models and framework to support children's curiosity, conceptual awareness and language development. P4C is a proven enquiry based pedagogy, where pupils take the lead and the teaching style is facilitative. The foundations of P4C are creative, critical, caring and collaborative thinking. During a P4C session, the children warm up with a game and then are given a stimulus (e.g. video, story, artwork). They use this stimulus to generate questions, choose a question and participate in a discussion, facilitated by the teacher. The aim is for classes to achieve a greater depth of understanding about a wide variety of concepts, using a range of thinking skills.
