The activities contained in this pack are the result of trials in George Hastwell School; Walney Island and Sandside Lodge School; Ulverston working with 9-14 year olds. The project focused on ways to adapt the core Philosophy for Children (P4C) methodology for work with children with Special Educational Needs (further information on P4C can be found on pages 6-8). Many of the activities took place in the outdoors, recognising the value of outdoor learning and included work on studying other localities and a focus on the theme of ‘needs and wants’.
