3S have been exploring philosophical issues surrounding Christmas and giving. We looked at a number of images of children receiving and giving gifts and then read a lovely poem which mentions how lucky some people are at Christmas. We then discussed how some people may not be as fortunate as us around Christmas time especially, and things that seem important to us as mere materialistic items to those in need. We then shared our thoughts and feelings following a philosophical approach.
The children generated a great question to debate 'Should we give presents at Christmas' which focused on how we could show love and kindness in other ways, and focus on the birth of Jesus Christ. The vocabulary used, as well as the justification for some debates was fascinating to hear.
Well done 3S on your first P4C session this half term!
