Aims of the course:
1. To experience and share practical examples of P4C within the classroom and in outdoor settings;
2. To provide tools and techniques to use the P4C approach with young children; and
3. To provide and share examples of resources to support future work.
Please note: The course is primarily aimed at colleagues with some experience of Philosophy for Children. However, staff with no experience but with an interest in P4C are also welcome.
Part of the course will take place outside in the school's forest and outdoor education area, and there will be an opportunity to see the school's grounds. There will also be an opportunity to discuss the impact of P4C and Outdoor Education with the P4C lead and Assistant Head, Leanne Ashton.
We are committed to providing a rounded education for our pupils, therefore incorporating outdoor learning, forest schools and philosophy into our curriculum. Our Philosophy practice supports our pupils to be effective, critical and creative thinkers and to take responsibility for their own learning in a caring and collaborative environment.
Our Forest School builds on a child’s innate motivation and positive attitude to learning, offering them the opportunities to increase their self reliance/independence and take risks in a well managed, safe environment.
