THUNKS

Date: 14th Sep 2017 @ 12:06pm

Once again, thank you for attending the WIP meeting last night.

It was lovely to hear that the children have enjoyed their first P4C session in Year 3. You could continue this at home by discussing a 'thunk' with your child.

Thunks are questions about everyday things that stop you in your tracks and help you start to look at the world in a whole new light. At the same time it can encourage you to engage in a healthy debate.

Some examples are: 

  • If you say sorry but don’t mean it, but the person you are apologising to thinks you are genuine, does it still count?
  • Is it ever right to bully a bully?
  • Can you love someone and hate them at the same time?
  • Can you think of nothing?
  • If you paint a window so that it is no longer see through, is it still a window?
  • Which is heavier, lies or promises?
  • What colour is a zebra if you were to take away its stripes?
  • Would you rather be a brave fool or a clever coward?
  • Which is more important, being right or being nice?
  • If I read a comic in a shop without buying it - is it stealing?
  • If we are all unique, are we all the same?
  • What colour is Monday?
  • Can you have a friend that you don't really like?
  • Is there more future or more past?
  • Can I be accused of cheating if I don't know the rules?
  • If I composed a piece of music, but it was never played, would it still be music?
  • Where does the sky start?
