Philosophy Friday!

Monday 16 October 2023

Every morning, children have a morning task as soon as they arrive at school.

This could be practising their number facts, times tables, spelling, reading skills and more! This is one reason why it’s vitally important that your child arrives at school on time.

On Fridays, our morning task is a little different. Fridays are now… Philosophy Friday! On these mornings, children are given the task to ‘think and be ready to share’ about a given statement.

These have included: We rely too much on technology; What is the meaning of a good life?; If you discover buried treasure, is it yours?; and more!

Help at home: have discussions with your child and give them the opportunity to develop their thinking skills by asking thought provoking questions!
