P4C activities are a fantastic way for children to develop their thinking, listening and speaking skills. It allows all barriers to be taken away and children to speak freely about their opinions. With this in mind, we can then work on children’s literacy skills. This includes sentence structure, choice of language and connectives. Let us have a go!!! Think about the use of connectives when you are giving your reasons See the object- In this, an everyday object is placed in the middle of a circle of children and everybody in turn given an opportunity to ask the object a question. Random words: This time, again working in a circle, each child says a word which must be unconnected to the last word spoken. If someone thinks there is a connection between the words they call out 'challenge!' and must explain the link. For example- TREE- CRISPS- trees grow, potatoes grow and crisps are made from them. Discussion outside the classroom- ideas that you can do with your child If a tree falls in a forest and nobody is there, does it make a sound? If a squirrel falls from a tree, should you pick him up? If a tree falls on a squirrel, is it bad luck? If a tree falls on you while you are picking up the squirrel, is it a tragedy? Who’s better? Are dogs better than cats? Are dolphins better than sharks? Are cats better than dolphins? Are sharks better than dogs? Are children better than adults? Is there anything we can help you with?
