Foundations in Philosophical Thought

The 'Foundations in Philosophical Thought' unit continues to stretch pupils’ minds and perceptions of the real and unreal, playing with philosophical ideas and theories such as Plato. Pupils’ tolerance and awareness of cultural variations is also fostered and draws upon the positive aspects of local and wider communities, faiths and people. Pupils will explore psychology through scientific experiments challenging their senses and analysing their responses.
