Hello and welcome to Year 4! 

I would like to introduce myself, Miss Ellard, as your new class teacher. I am looking forward to teaching you this year and I can’t wait for the exciting topics we will cover. 

Throughout the year, we will explore interesting topics through our ‘3Ps’ curriculum: person, place and point. Our first exciting topic will be titled ‘Burnt Cakes’ which focuses on: 

  • Person: Alfred the Great
  • Place: Ludenwic
  • Point: 1066 

This term, our class book for English is ‘The Lost Happy Endings’ by Carol Ann Duffy and Jane Ray. This is a vocabulary rich book with exciting visual images that I have no doubt the children will produce some excellent writing pieces from. 

About Me  

I am from the South of England and have just recently graduated from the University of Winchester with a degree in Primary Education. This is my first-year teaching at John Burns and I am excited to teach at such a lovely and community committed school. 

I enjoy going out with my friends and family, running and exploring London! 


The children will be expected to fulfil a weekly homework task. 

A homework task and a maths task will be given out every week to be returned and checked the following Wednesday. 

As well as a homework task, the children are expected to read at home to an adult for 15 minutes every day. It would also benefit your child if you read to them during this time. This will be checked weekly through the children’s reading records. 

In year 4, children must learn their weekly timetables and spellings that will be tested weekly. Please ensure your child is practising these at home. 

School Uniform and PE Kits 

Children will have PE every Monday and Thursday afternoon. Please ensure they children have the appropriate PE kit and that all uniform is clearly labelled. 


Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to talk to me about your child. You can catch me at the end of the day. Otherwise, please contact the school office to arrange an appointment.
