These live, online sessions will combine fun dialogue games that help children connect to one another, with opportunities for deep thinking and disagreement about juicy, debatable questions. How much can you change a picture before it becomes a lie? Do slugs deserve to eat? While you are silent, does your voice still exist? Is maths invented or discovered? Is the hole in a donut part of the donut?

How will P4HE work?
Sessions are facilitated by Jason Buckley, a leading expert in Philosophy for Children (see www.thephilosophyman.com)
The sessions are held using Zoom on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings and on Wednesday afternoons. There are separate times for different age groups - 6-8, 9-12 and teens.
Sessions will normally be £28 per student per block of four classes. Up to the summer, the cost for these mixed ability sessions, aimed particularly at homeschoolers, will be £25.
When you book you will be sent details of how to use Zoom and a link to join your class.
