RE visits in Essex

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by LisaBE, Aug 12, 2011.

  1. Our whole school topic next term is 'light and dark', and it obviously lends itself nicely to a number of religious festivals.
    I would like to take the children on a trip so they become familiar with settings other than Christian churches. However, I'm really struggling to find anywhere in Essex (or even at a push in Suffolk) to go. I was hoping to find a Hindu temple to take them to, but all of the information I find on the internet is really ropey, or just takes me to bonkers forums rather than actual temple websites.
    Does anyone have any ideas or contacts in the Hindu, and possibly Sikh, Buddhist, Muslim worlds etc. in this area?
    Thanks!

    Any of the children from these faiths so you could ask parents?
     
  4. Unfortunately no! A very white, middle class village school so not much opportunity there!

  7. You may wish to contact the Sikh Education Service on 07968 143546, where a Sikh Education Officer can visit and carry out Sikh Education Workshops / Assemblies in school (including a virtual tour of the Gurdwara) ; this is a countrywide offering and suggested fees are very reasonable.
