School of Thought is a series of SMSC interactive workshops and talks for students in KS2-KS5.
Workshops are designed to complement and expand the core ThoughtBox curriculum and encourage students to start asking questions and develop key skills of empathy building and global citizenship.
All of our interactive talks and workshops fully support SMSC learning and values and are available in a range of timings and formats.
Topics currently available within the School of Thought series are:
In each of our programmes, students are challenged to practise core skills of global citizenship by discussing ideas together, listening to each other and working on a series of interactive challenges.
Following an initial team-building activity, students will be asked a series of questions within the specific topic and set a range of challenges encouraging them to learn to work together, overcome differences, practise deep-listening and conflict resolution and explore diversity.
Each of our School of Thought talks and workshops supports SMSC education and will enable students to:
- Develop an understanding of critical thinking, empathy building and inquiry
- Engage in healthy dialogue and discussion by asking questions and practising deep listening
- Open up core global topics to develop interest in their own learning and responsibilities as global citizens
- Use creativity, teamwork and imagination to solve challenges
- Feel confident expressing opinions and exploring difficult questions
