This afternoon, we want you to think use your thinking and reasoning skills by taking part in a couple of P4C activities. Firstly, think carefully about the following P4C question:
After you have thought about this question, please discuss it with anyone in your house. Remember to take turns speaking, and use our year 5 speaking frames (the speaking frames are available to download on this blog posting). After expressing your opinion, discuss with each other whether your opinion has changed or is still the same. Finally, we want you to write your opinion down using any writing targets you can.
For example, my response to the question would be:
The new law I would introduce would be for people, who have been taking too much food and provisions from supermarkets, to be made to take any excessive food and provisions they have to vulnerable people and NHS workers and say sorry. Obviously, when they say sorry, they need to stay at least two metres away from the people they are saying sorry to!
After you have completed this, please watch the Spot and Strip video focusing on the question ‘Was maths invented or discovered?’. Again, have a P4C related discussion with someone in your house focused on this question. Click on the link below:
Thank you and see you tomorrow morning for a 9am start.
