Grades 1 – 6 Curriculum

The Morris Winchevsky School’s arts and social justice-based program offers Grade 1-6 students an exploration of Jewish culture, holidays, history, life-cycle events, cooking, environmentalism, Jewish languages, and Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World) — all from a secular humanistic perspective.

Students also take part in UJPO holiday celebrations such as the Purimspiel play, a Tu B’Shvat seyder, and asking the Di Fir Kashes (Four Questions) at our annual Third Seyder celebration.

Learning is enhanced with special themes that are interwoven throughout the curriculum. Recent themes include:

  • The Arts: “From Chagall to Chicago”
  • Social Justice: “Labour Movements, Law-Breakers and Love”
  • History: “Sephardim and Secularism”
  • Identity: “Global Jewries”
  • Ancestry: Working Families Stories and Treasures
