Curriculum Overview Spring Term 2023

Jewish Studies Curriculum Overview Spring Term 2023 


Whole school spirituality focus:

Pupils will develop their understanding of the connection between human beings. Through their experiences they will consider how all humans irrespective of faith or background work to make the world around them a safe, comfortable ad pleasant place. The children will be encouraged to express their spiritual insights that have led them to carry out their actions and to show evidence of empathy to others, control their own feelings, treat others how we wish to be treated, carry out Tzedakah (charity), consider their behaviour and demonstrate loving kindness. This will be explored through their Jewish learning as well as our PSHE curriculum and other events that take place in our school.
