Hi again and happy World Book Day!


It’s been a busy term for us at school, but we’re also hard at work developing the next set of Delphi resources! We have a few updates for you.

Complete Set of Lesson Blogs Now Online

Back in September, we began an epic series of lesson blogs, where we recorded what happened as we taught the full Delphi the Philosopher scheme with this year’s classes. The experience turned out to be a fantastic one – and we now have a complete record of teaching every lesson to two classes in different schools. The blogs contain a huge number of quotes, pictures and videos and show what an incredible experience teaching philosophy to children can be. Now, the final emotional chapter, Hemlock, is available for your reading and viewing pleasure, where Delphi finally comes face to face with Socrates.


This series of blogs as a whole showcase teaching philosophy to children in a completely unique, detailed and entertaining way – and we’ve become very proud of them, and of the children we were able to feature. It’s wonderful to be able to show the progress the children have made and share the experiences we’ve had. Thank you for all the positive feedback we’ve had about these blogs. If you haven’t checked them out yet, we’d certainly recommend giving them a try to get a great insight into what Delphi Philosophy is all about.


New Video: Highlights from Delphi the Philosopher!


Off the back of these lesson blogs, we’ve also been putting together a series of videos where the children explain what they think about doing Delphi Philosophy. You can find an overview ‘trailer’ on our home page, and an introduction to who Delphi is here. Our latest video shows the children describing their favourite moments of Delphi the Philosopher. Keep an eye out for the videos on our Twitter and Facebook pages too, and share them if you can!


Trial New Materials – Coming Soon!


We’ve got several new resources in the pipeline and we will need your help to develop them! Very soon, we’ll be contacting everyone who has registered their interest on the website with an offer of some free resources to trial. These will include resources around Delphi’s Guide to Athens, as well as brand new stories and enquiries which are in development. Want to get the resources first, for free and help us develop them? Register your interest here!


We’ve had some wonderful feedback about our work recently, and it’s fantastic to hear that we’ve been featured in some recent conferences for teachers. Please keep your feedback on what we’re doing coming in, especially if you’ve been teaching with Delphi yourself. We’d love to hear from you.


In the meantime, we’ll get back to our writing and drawing!

Delphi Philosophy.


Hi everybody,


The next lesson blog is now available! This is a long one, and it's taken quite a while to put together.


This time we're at the climax of the story where there is a plan to free Socrates, and Delphi has to make a speech to persuade the people of Athens to let him go! The children join Delphi in this challenge and make some speeches of their own as they develop their persuasion and presentation skills. With loads of videos from both schools, this one really does show how rich the experiences can be when Delphi comes into the classroom!


Read the blog and see for yourself here!

Happy New Year from Delphi Philosophy!


We have a lot planned for Delphi in 2020, and we already have some exciting updates for you.

New Lower Prices!

After a great deal of thought, we’ve decided to reduce the price of the Delphi the Philosopher scheme and enquiry packs for 2020. Creating Delphi is a labour of love for us and we want as many children as possible to be able to access these resources, while also reflecting the amount of work we’ve put into creating them. We also use this money to help cover the costs of running the website and store. We hope these new prices get the balance right!


You can now download the entire Delphi the Philosopher scheme for just £50, and you can download each Enquiry Pack for just £4.99! That means for less than a fiver, you can download the first two enquiries in our Trial of Socrates Enquiry Pack – and get your money back if you decide to then go on to purchase the full scheme.


Now’s a great time to try Delphi for yourself – browse our Enquiry Store here!


If you’ve already been teaching with Delphi, we’d love to know how you’re getting on!


New Video!


Have you visited our home page recently? Now you can watch a special video made with the children at two schools who tell us why they enjoy doing Delphi Philosophy so much. It’s a great introduction to what we’re all about (and features a terrific range of Christmas jumpers). Check it out and look out for the video to share on Facebook and Twitter too!


New Lesson Blogs!


Our series of lesson blogs continues, with the latest one showcasing how the children got on with the Miletus enquiry. The series of blogs features videos from the lessons, as well as pictures and quotes from the children, so give a real insight into what a Delphi lesson is like and the progress the children make. Keep an eye out for the final two blogs over the next few weeks!


We hope you have a wonderful and thought-provoking 2020! We’re hard at work with new resources already, so you’ll be hearing plenty more from us.


Happy New Year,


Dave and Rosie.
