John Clifford Primary & Nursery School ‘Be your best. Celebrate success. Together we will be successful.’

Year 4

Autumn 2


Welcome back to a new half term Year 4! smiley 


This term our Topic title is "Why did Pompeii's sky darken?" where we will be exploring the book 'Escape from Pompeii' and the wider topic of the Romans. 


Our timetable will largely stay the same this half term, with the following changes to PE/Outdoor Learning for both classes: 


Koala class: 

PE: Monday

Outdoor Learning: Tuesday


Lemurs class: 

PE: Monday and Friday


On PE/Outdoor Learning days, please ensure you are wearing appropriate PE kit (including shoes). We will be going outside as much as possible, so warm clothes are essential


Koala class: Please bring in wellies for outdoor learning and then leave them at school for this half term. Come to school in comfortable shoes and then you can change into wellies for the outdoor learning session and then back into your shoes for the rest of the day. 


Please find below our mind map to give you an idea of all the exciting things we will be covering this half term! smiley
