Today is World Philosophy Day and all classes have been developing their critical thinking and reasoning skills with a very interesting clip called Wings. Common themes were around friendship and helping each other, with each class taking a slightly different slant to answer their question.
Here are the questions we explored in each class, which do you agree with? Do you have any interesting points to further our discussions?
Y3B – Which are more important; people or objects?
Y3T – Why can’t people get along with others who are different?
Y3R- Why did the girl want to save the boy?
Y4C- Why can’t everybody live in peace?
Y4K- What makes people become bullies?
Y5G – If God is a good person why did he make bullying possible?
Y6W – Why do people punish others for being different?
Y6G – What would the world be like without bullies?
Y6E – What can we do to prevent bullying?
Y5A If we know what bullies are like on the outside by how they behave, are they the same on the inside?
