Pictured below are some of the children from 3rd to 6th class who took part in a short Philosophy course during the year. I am personally very interested in using Philosophy to enhance children’s listening, speaking and thinking skills. It was a great pleasure to see the children embrace the lessons and really listen to and accommodate different points of view. The children gave very interesting feedback such as ‘(I learned) to listen and not be shy’, ‘it makes me calm’, ‘I learned a lot about myself and others’, ‘I liked hearing what everyone thought’. These are really important life-long skills. Hopefully this will be something we can run again in the school. Well done to everyone who took part!
