This week in our philosophy lesson we read a book called Giraffes Can’t Dance as our stimulus. We had some time to think about the meaning of the story and what questions we would like to ask and then talk about.
There are four different types of questions. Comprehension questions, were you can find the information from the book. Knowledge questions, where you could find the answer by asking an expert. Speculation questions, where we can predict and make guesses about the answer. Philosophical questions, where we have to think and talk about our opinions and experiences.
Mr William’s class came up with three philosophical questions today.
Is everyone good at something?
Should you keep on practicing if you are not very good?
Should you support others even though they are being made fun of?
Should you keep on practicing if you are not very good? – This is the question we talked about today.
Miss Brewin’s class thought about lots of different questions but decided on the one below.
Can you always get better at something if you stick at it?
What do you think? Talk to your family and friends at home and leave us a comment to discuss in class.
