Philosophy - In school your child will take part in some child-friendly philosophy sessions. These sessions are much more accessible than they might sound!  They are generally based around a conversation, sharing an opinion or debating an idea. There are a series of free videos you can watch, each with a different theme. These videos will prompt a discussion, similar to the ones we have in our philosophy lessons in school. Click here to view The Philosophy Man YouTube channel. There is an example video for you to watch below.
