My Big Voice

My Big Voice

At Someries Infant School and Early Childhood Education Centre, My Big Voice sessions are held on a weekly basis to develop our pupils’ ability to answer ‘big’ questions and to develop their moral and social awareness.

These sessions are also focused on developing pupils’ ethical intelligence as well as their ability to debate topical issues at an age-appropriate level.

A selection of our My Big Voice questions include:

Early Childhood Education

  • What do you say if somebody takes a toy?
  • How do we respect others?

  • How can we say thank you?
  • How do we make friends?
  • What do we do if we see somebody doing something wrong?

Year One

  • Should we have pets?
  • Should we raise the Titanic?
  • Should children decide when to go to bed?
  • Is it okay to hunt animals?

  • Should children be able to bring sweets into school to celebrate their birthday?
  • What makes a good School Parliament representative?
  • Do all elections have to be fair?
