P4C (Philosophy for Children) Christmas Themed  Naughty List Enquiry

P4C (Philosophy for Children) Christmas Themed Naughty List Enquiry

Here is an outstanding Christmas themed lesson plan with stimulus and resources encouraging children to develop their reasoning skills. The resources can be used as a stimulus for P4C (Philosophy for Children) lessons or to structure a class discussion. The children are responsible to decide which people / fictional characters / fairytale characters (depending on age / experience) should be included on Santa's Naughty / Nice list. The stimulus is intended to guide the children to a discussion on rights and wrongs, consequences, behaviour, responsibility and choices. The activity will support the children to improve their critical thinking and discussion skills in a fun way. The themes are easy to access for students of all ages as their moral topics make them relevant for children (or adults) with a range of life experiences.

Outstanding P4C (Philosophy for Children) Christmas themed lesson

Here is an outstanding Christmas themed lesson plan with stimulus and resources covering the theme of morals. The resources can be used as a stimulus for P4C (Philosophy for Children) lessons or to structure a class discussion. The lesson encourages the children to look at different scenarios and to place them on a line between Naughty and Nice. The children will use their reasoning skills to explain to their peers why they believe the certain point e.g. Lying to Santa Claus should go at a certain point on the concept line.

A Mean Old Man - Scrooge gets up to date! Full Length Musical for Secondary Schools and Sixth Form

A Mean Old Man - Scrooge gets up to date! Full Length Musical for Secondary Schools and Sixth Form

This is a full length musical packed with outstanding songs - there's no 'filler' here! Scrooge is an estate agent, pay day loan shark, scrap gold merchant with an intern on a government training scheme. THERE CAN BE OVER 60 SPEAKING PARTS. PLEASE listen to the overview or go to the You Tube movie of the songs as performed by pupils at a secondary school. I've attached some of the backing tracks to give a flavour of the quality of the music on offer. There's really too much stuff to put it on to the TES site. I will provide what you need including full scores, backing tracks demo tracks and any other advice you need. Here's a synopsis: A Mean Old Man Synopsis Scrooge is alive and well and living in your local town as the proprietor of ‘Scrooge and Marley’ - estate agent, ‘unwanted’ gold dealer and pay day loan shark. His long suffering clerk is still Bob Cratchit; Bob is on a Government training scheme but the only education he gets from Scrooge is in the school of hard knocks. Cratchit moonlights in a band - he hopes to make it on an X Factor type programme but he has to keep regular money coming in to support Mrs Cratchit and the improbable number of Cratchettes - including of course a simpering do goody Tiny Tim (or Tina depending on casting). The show starts with a dance duet performed to a smoky jazz number ‘Wish For The Moon’ which tells Scrooge that his number is up. The dancers personify giving and taking and dance around a static figure with his back to the audience. Carol singers enter and ask Scrooge for a donation - whoops! Then we have the charity collectors who are dismissed, followed in short order by Darren and Sharon - Scrooge’s nephew and his - well - common (in every respect) law wife. Scrooge refuses their kind overtures and reluctantly gives Cratchit Christmas day off; Cratchit escapes the office and meets up with his fellow band members who wonder what they would do with all that money. As Scrooge reaches home we are treated to the sight of Marley (complete with dreadlocks and FX on Ghetto Blaster) who resembles his cousin Bob very strongly; in his own brand of punk ska he warns Scrooge of the three ghosts who will visit him that night. Scrooge poo poos this and settles down with his Freemans catalogue - he has just opened the ladies underwear section when he is interrupted by what appears to be an early 1960s cheesy pop singer who announces that he is the ghost of Christmas Past (‘long past?’ - ‘not on your nelly - your past - the rock’n’roll years!!)

3. Taiga Deforestation Culprits Edexcel B 8.4 a & b

3. Taiga Deforestation Culprits Edexcel B 8.4 a & b

This lesson covers Edexcel B points 8.4 a&b. I first imagined it like a murder mystery party where the students have to decide which factor is responsible for deforestation. However each 'culprit' has a big role to play in this so the activities changed, but still under that kind of light. First they have to label an empty nutrient cycle digram, recapping lesson 2. Then they read the culprit cards and write a more or more statement playing off the roles of each culprit to deforestation. After this they have to organise the culprits in to a diamond 9, then lastly they have to put their opinion on the opinion line and annotate it. This was a really good lesson for debate as I kept the human and physical factors in one lesson rather than separating them out. You could do some flip learning by giving out the culprit cards before the lesson so they are ready for the activities in class. I think I also used flip learning for this one using verso app I uploaded some videos on each culprit so they had an idea about the impacts already. The photos of pine cones were because I took in pine cones to demonstrate the adaptation of closed and open cones related to forest fires releasing seeds from the closed cones. This was good because the students had never seen pine cones before and called them acorns, a good little learning point.
