Philosophy at Stanley Road
We have a philosophy curriculum at Stanley Road. Philosophy is experienced in classrooms weekly and children's thoughts and theories are recorded on class displays. We started with the P4C initiative, an idea which gives children curriculum time to think, ask questions, wonder, debate and consider deep ideas and developed the idea into a bespoke curriculum with teaching materials and assessment criteria.
The purpose is to develop verbal fluency, depth of thought, analytic skills, mutual respect and independence, all features of our REAL Opportunities curriculum.
Our Philosophy "house rules" are below and just above them you will see links to a range of stimuli to get you going. Why not have a look at some with your child?
See what questions come to mind; see how deeply you can think.
