'Outstanding' PSHE lesson on Raising Aspirations

'Outstanding' PSHE lesson on Raising Aspirations

This lesson takes students through some immediately engaging activities using animations on the powerpoint and then 'Top Trump' Aspiration Cards and asks the students to think about what is really important to them and what they need to do to achieve success in life. My students loved this activity and this lesson led to ongoing discussions that drew on the characters on the 'Top Trump' cards I had designed.

'The Biggest Questions in Philosophy'[Philosophy Boxes] KS1-3 (P4C) Form Tutor SMSC

'The Biggest Questions in Philosophy'[Philosophy Boxes] KS1-3 (P4C) Form Tutor SMSC

The Philosophy Boxes Method is a new approach to P4C designed for students in KS1, 2 & 3: it is graphically stimulating, engaging, and fun. This download is also suitable for older students: but the format was designed with younger students in mind.The topic of this Philosophy Boxes download is 'The Biggest Questions in Philosophy'The aim of Philosophy Boxes is to bring philosophy and critical thinking into every subject at every level: we believe that any subject becomes philosophy when students are asked the right questions and when they think about a topic hard enough and on the deepest (most fundamental) level. The Philosophy Boxes Method presents students with a set of 'mystery boxes', when a student selects one of the boxes they are presented with 1 of 21 discussion/debate activities [that use 1 of 8 different formats].The presentation has integrated AfL so that teachers can test knowledge at any point in the lesson. There are 10 different AfL slides to choose from. The design is colourful, animated, fun and engaging: all activities require movement and teachers can decide whether students are expressing their ideas purely verbally or by using post-it notes.The nature of the design is that it can be used for short sessions (5-10 minutes) or much longer sessions (up to 2 hours!) - it allows for classroom practitioners to be flexible and adaptable. It can, therefore, be used in lessons or as a tutor-time activity.The download includes a PowerPoint Show; if you would like an editable PPT presentation so that you can make your own 'Philosophy Boxes' presentation you will need to download the template here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/-the-philosophy-boxes-method-template-for-creating-your-own-philosophy-boxes-lessons-p4c-p4k-11463227A complete selection of Philosophy Boxes lessons can be found here: https://www.tes.com/resources/search/?&q=philosophy+boxes+godwin86You can also save money by purchasing lessons as bundles.
