Philosophy for Children (P4C)

  • This is a great programme to get your children thinking and sparking off discussion. Give children time to think about and form their opinion and then share it in a sentence. They are used to using sentence starters such as 'I think..' 'I agree..' 'I disagree'. Encourage them to start justifying their ideas with reasons for their opinions.
