Aims of the project
The aim is to encourage philosophical enquiry in young minds and this project is based on work which goes on here at Francis Holland School and through the teachings of "Sapere" which is a national charity specialising in philosophy for children.
Background and goals
This project has been running for three years and is the brainchild of one teacher who, semi-retired, wanted to offer time and support to other schools.
Teacher time for delivery of sessions and also planning time.
There is a qualitative impact on the ability which young children have to analyse their own thinking.
One class of pupils in Year 4 are involved each week (thirty pupils).
Frequency and duration
Ongoing, weekly, since 2015.
