About the project
This whole-school project took place over the course of three years at a multi-cultural primary school in Bradford. Thinking Space teamed up with a Moira Benoit, a visual artist, Andy Duggan a musician and Laura Haughey a dancer, to explore new ways to help children articulate their thoughts and feelings about philosophical stimuli. Children across the school, many of whom were working with English as an additional language, responded in rich and unexpected ways through art-making, song writing and movement.
Through careful training and mentoring the school’s teachers implemented P4C into their teaching practice, something commented on in their recent Ofted inspection where they were awarded ‘Outstanding’.
