  • Year 6's Visit to St Philip's Cathedral

    At Colmers Farm, we are working hard to promote the acceptance, respect and understanding of others who may have different faiths or beliefs to ourselves. This is part of our 'No Outsiders' approach to teaching equality. At our school, every year group (from Years 2-6) visits a different place of worship each year, which reflects a different religion. These visits link with the RE topic each year group are studying.

  • Year 5's Mosque Visit

    As part of their RE studies about Islam, Year 5 visited Birmingham Central Mosque. Year 5 had the opportunity to explore this building and find out about its features and how people of a Muslim faith use this building to practise their faith. The children and staff all really enjoyed this visit and learnt a lot about Islam and mosques during it. These visits are important in developing children's knowledge, tolerance and respect for others from different faiths, as we prepare our children to live and work in the multi-cultural world in which we live.
