Curriculum Overview

Jewish Studies Curriculum Overview Autumn Term 2022 

 

Whole school spirituality focus:

Pupils will experience and sustain ‘feelings of awe and wonder’ about the world around them. They will consider the connection between G-d, the world and events in our lives. They will explore this through learning in Jewish Studies, the Tishrei festivals as well as Chanukah in December. They will also be encouraged to express through prayer, writing and discussion both within and out of Jewish lessons their appreciation of events, people and feelings of awe as well as promoting questioning about life and what they may have experienced and/or seen.
