I wanted to write and say how much our year 4 class have enjoyed the philosophy sessions you have been running for them. …. Speaking and listening are especially important parts of our literacy curriculum – Philosophy gave our pupils the opportunity to develop these skills in a sustained manner. Pupils also had to engage in thinking and reasoning which are key skills in the National Curriculum. I was interested to see how pupils needed to be resilient and confident in defending their point of view and how others learnt to challenge without being aggressive. Philosophy could be applied to many curriculum areas. I was delighted to have the opportunity to observe a session and was truly surprised by the quality of interactions and questioning among my pupils. Thank you for giving Morden Mount pupils the opportunity to experience Philosophy.
