The Philosophy Circles Primary Curriculum Pack

We asked teachers what stopped their schools embracing P4C. These three problems came up over and over:

 

  • “The biggest challenge is time - how do we fit it in around other pressures we are under?”
  • Some staff don’t understand P4C, and so their confidence is low”
  • “I get worried that the discussion will dry out”

 

Any of these sound familiar? If so, the Philosophy Circles Primary Curriculum Pack, available for delivery in time for the new academic year, is a must-have.

 

So what's included?

“Some staff don’t understand P4C, and so their confidence is low”

 

Each pack comes with 10 copies of our Philosophy Circles minibooks. Thousands of hours of doing philosophy with children and teachers is distilled into 48 readable, A6 pages. Small enough to fit into your pocket (“I've been carrying it around for months!” said one teacher), the book is built around three memorable principles that create engagement, challenge and independent thinking. It helps teachers stay true to the “why” of doing philosophy as well as giving do-able options for the “what”.

Also included is 10 copies of Thinkers' Games. 38 adaptable games to help children throw themselves into the joyful argy-bargy of the argument. 38 different ways to drive engagement and make thinking fun!

“I get worried that the discussion will dry out."

Our brand-new Discussion Dashboard is perfect for boosting teacher confidence in the face of the unknown. Designed for use during an enquiry, it places the distilled experience of years of facilitation in the hands of teachers new to P4C.

After 30 plus years of teaching, advisory and inspection experience I thought I’d seen plenty of innovative and exciting approaches in the classroom but whilst sitting in a session led by Tom I couldn’t help feeling that here was something new and of superior standing. Philosophy Circles is like a magic portal (dare I say TARDIS….bigger on the inside!). I've been carrying the book around in my handbag for months. Just 50 pages but packed with an ever expanding wealth of resources and don’t get me started on what it feels like when you try them out in class. As the book says ‘take the road less travelled’ and it will make ALL the difference to your class!"
