Visits and Workshops are necessarily short and a comment we frequently get is “We wish we had more time for questions and discussion.”

Obviously your group can discuss things later as you wish but we can also provide well-informed discussion leaders to expand on issues that may have arisen during your visit. We are happy to lead a discussion on any matters – from the purely practical and informative to the highly controversial.

Additional Resources

We also have a variety of carefully differentiated Activity Sheets based on our Faith Trails, that can help extend the children’s learning back in the classroom. These are currently only available as part of a Faith Trail visit and prices start from as little as £2.50. All activity sheets are related to the New Agreed Syllabuses and are factually accurate for each religion (Judaism, Hinduism, Christianity, Islam and Sikhism).

Here as a list of the Activities available:

  • Early Years
  • Year 1
  • Year 2
  • Years 3 and Years 4
  • Years 5 and Years 6
  • Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4

 

All are available with a teacher resource sheet. Please email our office on contact@derbyopencentre.org to add these to your visit.

Important note: Our discussion leaders will always try to lead a balanced discussion but they will have views of their own which they are free to express. Please note that any such personal views are their own – the Open Centre does not have specific views on any matters – other than promoting social harmony through understanding.

During your visit, one of our staff members will ask you how many visitors you have brought – this is for two reasons, one for fire safety and two, so we can correctly invoice you according to how many visitors came rather than how many you originally booked in.

You will then be sent an invoice to the email account of the person who made the booking along with a feedback form. We ask that all outstanding invoices are settled by the 30th day after your visit, otherwise we may charge an additional admin fee for overdue/late payments. If you have any queries regarding your invoice, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us on contact@derbyopencentre.org.
