Thank you to all the parents who attended our Coffee Morning today. We discussed the topic of P4C (Philosophy 4 Children).
What is P4C? P4C stands for Philosophy for Children. The aim is to help children become more thoughtful, more reflective, more considerate and more reason-able individuals.
Children are taught how to create their own philosophical questions. They then choose one question that is the focus of a philosophical enquiry, or dialogue. The teacher becomes a facilitator, supporting the children in their thinking, reasoning and questioning, as well as the way the children speak and listen to each other.
