Open with a sitting-down game/activity and then ask the pupils, “Is what you just did ‘sport’?”



  • Does sport require competition?
  • Does sport need to have winners and losers?
  • Is all exercise sport?
  • Is all sport exercise?
  • Does sport need to be good for your health?
  • What is the purpose of sport?
  • Who is elite sport for? The people watching or the people taking part?
  • Should we reward luck in sport?
  • Can you think of a sport/game that’s all luck?
  • Can’t you think of a sport/game that’s all skill?

This enquiry is by TPF Philosopher Louise Chatterton
