In Year 3 & 4 the children have been learning about Hinduism as part of World Faith in their R.E. lessons. This is linked to the Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education in Derbyshire. In addition to this it will also support the children’s learning on ‘Promoting British values’ through showing tolerance and mutual respect. As part of our learning we have arranged a trip to the Open Centre, in Derby. Whilst the children are at the Open Centre they will have the opportunity to visit a Hindu Temple. We believe that it is increasingly important that pupils have an understanding of the diversity of religious traditions, practices and forms of worship found in our country but please be assured that under no circumstances will any child be asked to participate in any aspect of worship or be required to compromise their own faith or beliefs during this study visit. Whilst there, the children will listen to a brief talk centred around their learning and take part in some interactive activities. This will help the children to learn about different faiths and cultures through a personal experience, which we feel as a school is a necessity in today’s modern society. The children will also take part in a Hindu marriage workshop which will include having a Henna design painted on their hand. Please indicate on the form below if you would like your child to take part in this or not. All children will need to bring a packed lunch with them which should NOT include fizzy drinks or chocolate and full school uniform should be worn. If your child is entitled to, and you’d like school to supply, a Free School Meal please indicate on the form below and return to the school office by no later Friday 9th February so provisions can be ordered by the kitchen. Unfortunately we will not be able to supply a F.S.M. if forms are not submitted by the allocated time. Please note that this trip will be funded by school and the P.T.A. so there will be no cost to parents and carers. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or you can visit the Open Centre’s website for more details at http://www.derbyopencentre.org/
