Philosophy for primary schools – KS2...
This series of lessons will introduce children to the subject of philosophy and develop their reasoning and questioning skills. It also develops their understanding of ethics, virtues and provides wider SMSC (Social, Moral, Social and Cultural) experiences.
It can work well with any year group from 2 to 6, but especially for lower key stage 2, or as part of an Ancient Greece theme. The lessons work by sharing a specially written story, either by watching the videos on YouTube (link below) or by downloading the story for the teacher to read aloud.
It follows Delphi, a girl in ancient Athens, who becomes interested in philosophy after meeting the famous philosopher Socrates.
During the story, there are ‘big questions’ which can be discussed with the children and opportunities for activities to develop specific thinking skills.
The stories enable the teacher to model good ways of expressing ideas, and lead discussions at whatever level of difficulty appropriate for the class.
