Religion and Belief Roadshow

Religion and Belief Roadshow.

 

On Monday 10th October, as part of Enrichment Day, the Humanities Department welcomed a group of visitors from the St Philips Centre, Leicester, to host a ‘Religion and Belief Roadshow’.

The students made their way around a number of tables where they could ask lots of questions about different religions, including Judaism, Jainism, Christianity and Islam. There were also hands on opportunities to try on religious garments, handle religious artefacts and try a variety of foods.

Humanities Teacher Mrs L Dracup said, ‘Wow! The Year 7 students fully embraced this interactive roadshow. The morning was spent trying different foods, experimenting with saris and head scarves and speaking to representatives from a wide range of beliefs and religions.This was an enriching experience for Ivanhoe and it was great to see all students smiling and actively participating.’

 

Some Year 7 students told us what they thought of the day;

Oliver P said, ‘I found it really fun. It is good to learn what everyone believes. They all link in to one. All religions have similar ideas and they all respect each other.’

Bethany S said, "Today has been a really good day learning about everyone’s beliefs, which seem different, but are actually the same."

George F said, "My favourite was Sikhism because he was funny and let me try a turban on. The Humanities teacher wore a sari – it was hilarious. LOL!"

 

The students also enjoyed trips to St Helen’s Church and Ashby Baptist Church, in Ashby – later in the day.
