Free Thinking Time

At Regents Park we aim to develop learning through innovative approaches. Free Thinking Time is an approach to questioning and reasoning that uses philosophy strategies to engage children in deep and meaningful discussions. Through modelling and the opportunity to think and discuss topics of interest, children are developing their ability to articulate their ideas and listen attentively. 

Background information

Research undertaken by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF, 2016) demonstrates that when philosophy is consistently incorporated into  timetables on a regular basis there is a positive impact on reading and maths.

 

The staff at Regents Park have shared some 'Big Questions' in the Free Thinking Time video.
