Hi everyone,


The new school year here in the UK is fast approaching, and we have some brand-new resources to share with you!

Teaching Delphi Philosophy

Why teach philosophy now?


Teaching philosophy to children is one of the most effective, engaging and cheapest ways of developing children’s learning skills.


Many schools will be looking for ways to rebuild their children’s learning skills following the disruption of the last couple of years. Teaching philosophy to children is a fantastic way of developing these skills which can support their learning in all subjects. Delphi Philosophy has been put together in such a way that children make progress in their listening, questioning, reasoning and explaining skills – just by engaging with the stories and joining in the activities! We have a substantial assessment system in place which informs the structure of our stories and schemes of work, meaning we can observe and measure the progress children make. What’s more, learning to teach philosophy to children helps develop the teacher’s skills so that all your discussions and questioning, in whatever subject, has a greater impact. We know it works – we’ve been doing it for years!


There’s never been a better time to get started – and we have new enquiries and resources ready for you.

Best Teacher Ever

Best Teacher Ever


Best Teacher Ever is our brand new, multi-part enquiry about learning. The purpose of this story and enquiry is to help children consider what learning means, and what is the best way we can learn new things. It was created to help children develop their metacognition, and better understand how teaching and learning really works. The story follows Delphi as she encounters her very first teachers. She is very excited at first, certain that she will find learning easy, whatever her friend Plato might think about it. Over the three main parts of the story she has lessons from three very different teachers - who just happen to be three famous teachers from the history of philosophy! Based on the ideas of Socrates, Plato, John Locke and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, this lively and engaging story will help children understand what really makes good teaching and learning.


You can find out more and download this enquiry pack for just £2.99 on our Enquiry Store here.

Delphi the Dreamer

The Dream – available now for Delphi members


Delphi the Dreamer, our next full-length story and scheme of work, is almost here! After beginning work on this almost three years ago, we are currently in the final stages of putting this together for release during 2021 and 2022. This scheme of work follows the same format and structure as Delphi the Philosopher but is targeted at slightly older children (9-14) or those more experienced in doing philosophy. While Delphi the Philosopher focuses primarily on ethics, Delphi the Dreamer focuses on metaphysics - particularly questions of being, reality and identity. It also continues the skills progression established in the first scheme of work, challenging children to further develop their listening, questioning, reasoning and explaining skills. This scheme will suit primary aged children who have already completed Delphi the Philosopher, or older children who are ready to start their journey into philosophy with some even bigger questions!


'The Dream' is the first chapter of Delphi the Dreamer, and is available to trial now exclusively for our members! This rollercoaster ride of a story was written to be an exciting introduction, or reintroduction, to philosophy for children. It's packed with surprises and mysteries, as Delphi comes face to face with the Demon and encounters some of the biggest questions of all. We put together this story to be as memorable, as impactful and as useful as we could - the ideal way to get children developing their learning skills and becoming philosophers!

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 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.
