Other Subjects

For RE this half term, we will be learning about Judaism! We will be looking at their beliefs and values as well as some of the key signs and symbols in their religion. Children will be retelling some of their scriptures to gain a deeper understanding of the faith.


Art: We are very lucky in Sawley to have a whole week dedicated to art! In this time, we will be creating Egyptian art, Roald Dahl art (to celebrate his birthday) and studying different artists before creating art based on their style.


Geography: As we are learning about Egypt, we will be looking at the geography of this country. We will be learning about the Nile river, the temperature and seasons in Egypt and will be doing some map work about the country.


History: Again, this subject will link to our topic so we will be studying Egyptian Gods and the myths and legends that Egyptians told about them. 


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.


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.
