Sticky Questions Year 7 (11-12 yrs)
Sticky Questions were inspired by the experience of Julie Mahon at Latton Green Primary “Since the beginning of this academic year I have been sending out thunks on stickers for the children to wear home every Thursday. This has been rolled out across the school and has been a really positive way to include discussion at home. On Fridays the children feed back what their families’ opinions were and if anyone changed their mind after hearing other family members’ ideas.”
A year’s worth of thought-provoking questions for parents and children to share.
This class set of Sticky Questions includes 39 questions plus an extra summer holiday question. They are pitched at the age level of the class but will be able to stretch the brightest thinkers. There are at least 32 stickers for each question. Most stickers are printed 12 to a page, or 8 to page for those that need additional illustrations.
The idea is that one day each week, all the children go home with a sticker in their planner. Instead of having a conversation about, “Have you done your homework”, the homework IS the conversation. Then the following day, the discussion can carry on at school, drawing on ideas from home. It’s a way of making form time discussions richer and more interesting, and involving parents.
Over the course of the year, your new secondary students will get the chance to think about nearly 300 different questions – a memorable mix of the philosophical and some more free-wheeling creative stuff. If you’d like us to produce more for Years 8 and 9, let us know and we will respond to demand.
If you buy before the release date of August 23rd, you’ll also receive access to 14 Philosophy Circles session plans that are popular at secondary level.
All packs will also include ideas on how to carry on the discussion back in school, and how to support children who get less support from home, how to involve grandparents and so on. There will be access to publicity material you can use with parents, such as a customisable version of this letter:
