Hi everybody,


We have a big update for you this time! Although it’s been an incredibly busy and challenging year for everyone in the education sector, we’ve been pressing on with developing Delphi Philosophy in our spare moments. There’s never been a greater need to help children develop their learning skills or help them tackle some of the biggest questions during these complicated times. Today, we can finally show you what we’ve been working on!


Delphi Philosophy Membership

Children watching Delphi on YouTube

You can now become a Delphi Philosophy member and get access to everything we have to offer! The new Members Area of our site has been put together to make our full library of resources available for download, as well as give you access to trial resources and the rest of the community. For just £30 for an annual subscription, a membership will give you immediate access to:

  • The full scheme of work for Delphi the Philosopher, including the full set of resources and lesson plans

  • Access to all our Enquiry Packs

  • The full set of printable resources for Delphi’s Guide to Athens

  • The Delphi Philosophy Teacher’s Guide, containing extensive advice and information on teaching and assessing philosophy with children

  • First access to trial versions of new enquiries – including ‘Best Teacher Ever’: the brand-new three-part enquiry on the topic of how we learn – ideal for developing children’s metacognition

  • Access to the Agora Forum, where you can ask questions and share ideas with other members

  • First access to Delphi the Dreamer – our brand new scheme of work 9-13 year olds, and due out later this year

We hope this new, and even more affordable, option to access our resources appeals to you! Click here to find out more and get your membership now.



Already Purchased Delphi the Philosopher – School Version?


If you’ve already purchased the full school version of Delphi the Philosopher, we would be delighted to give you a year’s membership for free! You will receive two e-mails – one asking you to confirm your e-mail address, and the other confirming your membership and containing instructions for creating your account. This way you can access the resources whenever you like, try out the new trial resources and help start the conversation in the Agora Forum. We’d love to hear how you’ve been getting on!



Delphi the Philosopher on Kindle

We’ve also just released the Home Version of Delphi the Philosopher on the Kindle Store! Priced at just £4.99, you can now download our philosophical adventure for children straight onto your device through the Amazon website or the Kindle app. We’d really appreciate all your reviews too, so please check it out, tell your friends and support us with some stars!


New Price Structure

Reading Delphi

With these new releases, we’ve also updated our prices to make our products more affordable than ever. Delphi Philosophy wasn’t created to make a profit – we’re keen to make our resources as accessible as we possibly can.

Don’t forget about all our free resources too! You can also watch all of Delphi the Philosopher on our YouTube channel, and explore our popular children’s site, Delphi’s Guide to Athens.


I think that’s everything for now! We’re so excited to develop our community through the Delphi Philosophy membership and to share even more philosophical adventures with you.


Best wishes,


Dave and Rosie

Hi everybody,


We hope you are keeping safe and well during these challenging days. This year certainly hasn’t gone as planned for any of us, but we are still able to bring you some philosophical adventures and exciting news for 2021. We have already released one major update this year, and we have plenty more still to come!


Delphi on YouTube

Children watching Delphi on YouTube

I’m delighted to tell you that Delphi is now on YouTube! You can now watch the complete story of Delphi the Philosopher as an interactive philosophy adventure for children. This is the first time we’ve made the full story freely available – 3 and a half hours of philosophical adventures, big questions and silly jokes. This will be a brilliant resource for developing children’s thinking skills, whether it be for home learning, with a group of children in school or as a fun and fascinating bedtime story. Start the adventure on our YouTube channel here.


For more details about the story, including how it can develop children’s learning and thinking skills and to see the stories in action in school, click through to our main page for Delphi the Philosopher here.


Delphi Philosophy Subscription Service

Very soon, we are going to be giving our store a major update – as we launch the new Delphi Philosophy subscription service! This will give you an annual subscription to access everything we have produced, and will produce, on a special ‘members only’ section of the website. On launch, this will include all of the following:

  • The full scheme of work for Delphi the Philosopher, including the full set of resources and lesson plans

  • Access to all of our Enquiry Packs

  • The full set of printable resources for Delphi’s Guide to Athens

  • A new ‘Teacher’s Toolkit’ section, containing extensive advice and information on teaching and assessing philosophy with children

  • First access to trial versions of new enquiries – including ‘Best Teacher Ever’: the brand-new three-part enquiry on the topic of how we learn

  • Access to a members’ area, where you can ask questions and share ideas with other members

  • And – first access to this:


Delphi the Dreamer – Coming Later in 2021!

Reading Delphi

The next scheme of work to follow Delphi the Philosopher is on its way! We have been working on this for well over a year now, and will contain ten brand new enquiries as Delphi faces her toughest philosophical challenges yet. This story and scheme of work will suit slightly older or more experienced children than our first scheme of work, and will be perfect to develop the thinking skills of children from 9-13. But who is this mysterious figure with Delphi? You’ll just have to wait until later in the year to find out!



This year has been so difficult for so many people, so we hope that we can at least give your little ones some philosophical fun this year! There’s never been a more important time to keep children thinking and laughing.


Best wishes to you all.

Delphi Philosophy

Hi everybody,


We got asked recently by Dr Arlene Holmes-Henderson to write a blog for Advocating Classics Education, an organisation promoting the teaching of Classics in schools. Arlene has been wonderfully supportive of us and we were delighted to do it!


You can read the blog on the Advocating Classics Education blog here.

Delphi the Philosopher

Amidst a very busy term for us, we have been teaching Delphi the Philosopher to our new classes! It is a joy to teach this story and these lessons once again, and the children seem to be enjoying it just as much as in previous years. It is also proving invaluable in developing their learning skills after such a huge disruption in their learning. Last year, we produced a series of lesson blogs, with extensive video and photos, which show what these lessons are like - you can explore them all here.


If you're teaching with Delphi this term, we'd love to hear from you. Please contact us and share what you're getting up to, or come and find us on Twitter or Facebook.


We've also been busy preparing new resources for you. It looks like after a quieter 2020 (in terms of releasing new things, not in terms of everything else!), next year is shaping up to be a big year for us. Watch this space... exciting developments are on their way!


We hope you are all keeping safe and well during these challenging times. Every day we work with children is a day well spent.


All the best,


Dave and Rosie.

Delphi Philosophy.
