P4C in Y5G

This week in P4C we used a clip from the film Matilda to generate our questions, please watch the clip below –


Here are the questions we generated,

  1. Why do some parents do child cruelty?
  2. What makes you adopt a child?
  3. Why do Matilda’s parents treat her brother better?
  4. Why does her family make her fearful? 
  5. Why do Matilda’s parents make her watch so much TV?

Question 4 was the question the children decided to discuss.

They thought carefully about the role of parents and children and how we should respect one another. If you have any thoughts about the video clip based on the questions above please comment.

Tell us what you think....
