What is a philosofun?

Philosofun is a collaboration between myself and Gina Parker (Mullarkey) from Little Chatters 

•Philosofuns are a non-competitive, active, playful, engaging and above all fun approach to Philosophy for Children (P4C)
•Short philosophical games for starters, class session or full day events
•Philosophical games fostering and developing skills in collaborative thinking through ‘micro-communities’ in trios or quad groupings
•Philosophical games focus on a concrete theme or concept such as robots, monsters, clocks, food, homes, water, trees and pets.  These themes and concepts pave the way to 'bigger' more abstract concepts so are perfect for any age or experience of P4C.

Next Philosofun: Trees (Oct 2021)

During the Pandemic we started putting our Philosofuns online. These events are an hour and a bit long session with plenty of ideas to take away - and fun taking part in them too! Our next Philosofun is Tuesday 19th October at 4.15pm and the theme is 'trees' - as chosen by participants at the last event.  Philosofuns cost £10 per session and are a great way to meet new colleagues and refreshen up your P4C practice.  You can book here.

 

 

We also provide bespoke training for schools who want to create their own Philosofun day.  We can work with a P4C leader or provide whole staff training.  We also welcome schools to use the  Philosofun logo for their philosophy day of the week or month with a question or statement that can be on display or part of school newsletters. Please contact me if you would like a copy of the logo to use with a selection of starter questions.
