Philosophy 4 Children (P4C)
Welcome to our P4C page. P4C stands for Philosophy for Children, and is an approach to teaching and learning which encourages and develops children's caring, creative, collaborative and critical thinking skills. It is these skills which enable children to be independent thinkers and learners across the rest of the curriculum. On Philosophy Fridays, each class explores a concept or question which they created and chose themselves.
Richmond Primary School currently holds the Silver Award for P4C, which was awarded by SAPERE. This recognises the school's commitment to P4C, and the progress that the children are making with their thinking.
This page will be regularly updated to show what has been happening across the school, and what the P4C Champions have been up to.
Below will be a 'website wonder'. This is a concept and group of questions that have been designed to spark discussion at home.
We'd love to hear what you talked about - please let us know via the guestbook below!
