Other Subjects

For RE this half term, we will be learning about Jewish beliefs, traditions, signs and symbols. We will be researching the foods they eat, the celebrations they enjoy, the stories they value and the clothes they choose to wear. Passover is an element we will be looking more deeply into and we will be investigating how this festival links to the Sedar meal Jewish people enjoy over the Passover festival.


Art: This term we hope to create some art linked to Judaism! We will also be improving our sketching techniques and our colour mixing skills.




History: Again, this subject will link to our topic so we will be studying some people linked to self survival and living a better life.


Computing: In Sawley, online safety is of key importance. We will be having regular talks about not only the benefits of being online but also the risks. In year 4, we aim to prepare the children with a good understanding of their digital footprint and what to do if they see something they find uncomfortable online. We will also be using Google search regularly and will be learning how to use procedures in coding.This half term we will be focusing on how networks work and how search engines can be used more effectively.


Handwriting: We are now encouraging the children to use cursive (joined) handwriting which we will be practicing as a part of our broad and balanced curriculum. We thank you in advance for your support with this in homework activities where appropriate.
