Philosophy for Children

IMG_6632 RWe seek to provide a challenging and diverse Philosophy curriculum in the Upper School that stimulates both creative and critical thinking. Through a process of enquiry, based on the ‘Philosophy for Children’ model, we enable children to engage and question the abstract theories of both Ancient and Modern Philosophers, as well as debate current issues in the media.

In Year 6, Philosophy of Religion is studied across the academic year and the children have the opportunity to explore and debate: the Cosmological Argument, the Moral Argument and the problem of evil. Emphasis is placed on the understanding and use of philosophical terminology, as well as engaging with and challenging the ideas of others.

STEM Week – Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths at The Roche School

The week commencing 3rd October will be STEM Week at The Roche School, based around the theme of Water. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, so the week will involve many exciting experiments, challenges and construction activities. On  Monday 3rd October, STEM Week will be kicked off by a special whole school assembly centred on the theme of ‘Water’, led by a special guest…Science Man. Throughout the day every class will have a workshop looking at the importance of water, uses of water and water experiments. On Tuesday 4th October we will be holding a whole school ‘Times Tables Challenge’, where every child will compete (with differentiated tables) to gain as many points for their house as possible. Good luck! On Thursday 6th October, The STEM team at school will lead an interactive assembly and award prizes won during the weeks’ challenges.
