P4C Outside the Classroom…

Each month there will be a new stimulus for discussion at home with the family. Everyone sees and thinks something different, which leads to such rich discussions and deeper insights into understanding each other.

Have a look at the 4 Cs before your discussion and see if you can embody the P4C ethos. 

A Song of Your Own

Goro Fujita Surprise Song

Have a think about the following questions…

  • What is the bird on the left doing? How do you know?
  • Do you think that the bird’s song is good or bad? Why?
  • Does that bird often sing?
  • What is the bird on the right thinking? What might it say when the other bird has finished singing?
  • Which bird is more confident?
  • Which bird do you best relate to?
  • Have you ever been in a situation like this one?
