PHILOSOPHY IN KS2

John Semmens - KS2 RE Leader, Philosophy Advocate and Curriculum Writer

Welcome to Philosophy in KS2. This blog contains posts and links to plans for children in KS2 (ages 7-11). 

I am a Norwich based RE teacher specialising in Key Stage 2 Philosophy teaching. As a member of the Norfolk SACRE, sitting on committee B, I am an enthusiastic speaker on philosophy in schools. To support the subject's growth and wider understanding I have produced a training programme to give teachers a 'Crash Course'in Philosophy. 

My work also covers written plans to help teachers introduce philosophy to their classrooms. These can be accessed by attending one of the courses running this year. Please subscribe to this page for more details. 

 

If you need help convincing colleagues that Philosophy matters then please read my blog.  

Please follow me on Twitter @philosophyinKS2 for details of upcoming plans and events.
