Children, teachers and philosophers take part in Bristol Philosophy Exchange
Thinking Space is supporting philosophers at Bristol and teachers from Sefton Park Primary as they set out on their own Philosophy Exchange. The project instigated by philosophy post grad and teacher in training Ellie Hart and supported by SAPERE and Bristol Uni, brings teachers, philosophers and children together in weekly philosophical enquiry.
Following the model at Leeds – devised by Thinking Space – teachers, philosophers and children will exchange skills and knowledge over 12 weeks of training and classroom practice.
The project kicked of with a SAPERE level one training day in March led by Grace and a modelling session in school where Year Five had plenty to say on the subject of belief and flying dogs.
