Philosophy on the Field with Reception
We had a brilliant morning with Gina who led special activities of Philosophy for Children on the school field with us. First we had a parachute game where we listened and changed places with each other. We then worked as a class team to keep the inflatable globe on the parachute.
Next we searched the field for objects deciding if we thought the objects we found should be on the field or shouldn’t be there. We explained our ideas and were surprised to find out how different children had different ideas.
Finally we worked in pairs to make dens for a little monster. It was fantastic how the children listened to each other and made structures using different things found on the field.
