  • Hello and welcome!

    Your life will never improve unless you start making daily improvements. - Lewis Howes

    Ubuntu is an Ancient African word which means: 'I am', because 'we are' - which means - working together.

    Hello and Welcome to your Y4 blog- previously the Y5V blog. The name 'Ubuntu' means also to help one another and work together, have compassion and humility - all linking to our 5 school values!

    Queen Cleopatra 69 BC
    Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try. Always 'try!'
    A person who walks in another’s tracks leaves no footprints. So, do not copy other people, think outside the box and do what you need or want to do. Don't be a follower - be a leader.
    The minute you start talking about what you’re going to do if you lose, you have lost.
    Imagination is more important than knowledge.
    The world is divided into people who do things – and people who get the credit.
    The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. Keep on dreaming, it's something good!
    Until you spread your wings, you have no idea how far you can fly. So, start doing! You'll be amazed by what you will achieve!

    Our values: Truth, Compassion, Contentment, Humility and Love   

    Our  ‘learning to learn’ skills are:
    Confidence to give everything a go, Persistence, Asking questions, Making links with prior learning, Sharing ideas and forming your own opinions, Creative problem-solving, Thinking things through – planning ahead

    Our shared values in Y4: To care for myself and others by making sure we are all safe and happy. To be honest in all we do and say. We always work hard and try our best. We listen carefully and do our work thoroughly. We make sure we are always giving our best, so everyone else can be the best that they can be. We look after our property.
    We like to be 'leaders' and not 'followers' We always choose the 'good' light inside of us. We make the right choices at the right time.

    Anyone can train hard for a short period. Winners give their best every hour of every day for months on end.

    We like to stop and think - before we do or speak.

    'Give children a thought and they’ll learn for a day. Teach them to think and they’ll learn for a lifetime.’David Hyerle
    If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it.- William Arthur Ward
    You cannot write it, if you cannot say it; you cannot say it, if you haven't heard it.

    We love to share our way of thinking, it does help us in our learning!

Online Safety

In school we are learning about online safety. We will have discussions about online safety and how to be safe online.

We know that people online can pretend they are somebody else and that we should not trust anyone online – in particular if they are strangers!

e-Safety Rules

  • Ask permission before using the Internet.
  • Only use websites that an adult has chosen.
  • Tell an adult if you see anything you are uncomfortable with.
  • Immediately close any webpage you are not sure about.
  • Only e-mail people an adult has approved.
  • Send e-mails that are polite and friendly.
  • Never give out personal information or passwords.
  • Never arrange to meet anyone we don’t know.
  • Do not open e-mails sent by anyone you don’t know.
Tips For Parents
Talk with your children about what they are doing online. Find out which websites they visit and how they communicate with their friends online. Are they using instant messaging programs like MSN Messenger, or are they texting their friends using their mobile phone? Make sure your children know they can come and talk to you or another trusted adult if they are worried or upset about anything that happens online.
Together with your children, draw up a set of responsible rules about using the Internet that the whole family agrees to. Think about what is reasonable for the age of your children, and make sure your children are balancing the amount of time they spend online with the amount of time they spend on other activities.
Make sure your children understand the importance of keeping their personal information safe. Posting personal information on websites, or sending in messages, can lead to strangers getting hold of it. Items of personal information such as full name, address, telephone numbers, photographs and school name should all be kept secret and not posted online. Encourage your children to think about who else might be able to see what they post on websites or send in messages.
Remember, the easiest way to keep your child safe online is to keep their laptop/PC in a family space so that the screen is visible at all times. There should be no need for children to have privacy for what they are doing online – if they want privacy, that is a red flag indicating that they are doing something they shouldn’t be! Remember that children can also access the Internet from other devices such as mobile phones, portable music players and games consoles.
The Internet allows young people to make new friends across the country and even across the world, allowing them to learn about new cultures and new places. However, make sure your children know that they should never meet anyone they only know from the online world, unless they take you or another responsible adult with them.
PARENTS: Remember, removing the internet connection cable means end of internet time, no arguments!

This is the COPYRIGHT sign. Where you see this with an image, with information, etc. you are NOT allowed to copy it and claim it as yours. Many other things like poems, do not have it, but there is a name  of a poet with the poem and that means the poem has been written by that POET. You can NOT have it on your site/blog without the name of the poet. Otherwise you mean: you CLAIM it as been written by YOU, which is NOT the case.

Ensure: 1. If you add an image to your site, try and put the site [in short is enough] where you found the image. [if you have the link of the site. If you found it on google images, say it!]See this example. This compass image is not my own and the second image is from the site of the BBC. Look at how I explain where the images are from. Some people link the image directly to the site where it comes from, that is even better.

If you find a poem on the internet that you really like, copy and paste it, but ENSURE the poet’s name is attached to the poem! You need to protect yourself when using stuff from the internet.
