    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

    '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!

My Story

streetchildren1Grimy Nick was sleeping, meanwhile, slowly and quietly Jim was trying to escape. As soon as he got the opportunity, Jim rain in the lashing rain filled with hunger. Soon he fainted and fell on the concrete. Jim was found in a dissimilar place, he was surrounded by towering tall, good looking strangers. Where am I? Who brought me here? Jim thought for himself. Hopeless and fearful, downhearted and breathless, Jim looked around at the crowd, feeling lonely and sad.

There was a big white house where the crowd was going.  Hesitantly Jim approached the house and made to the entrance, while the police was looking the other way around to search for something unusual. Quickly and quietly, Jim hid behind the brown coloured sofa. Looking around at the others he could see, faces look very unfamiliar to him.

Exhausted and painfully tired he was going back and saw Mr Spink. He couldn’t believe his eyes! “What is Mr Spink doing here?” Jim wondered.  He wanted to get out! He had a fear that someone watched him getting  out. Finally he decided to escape. The following night he finally managed to escape without anyone knowing. With numb eyes he walked through the whole night. On the street he heard a strong and a confident voice.

“I am here to help you,” said a strange man to Jim, whilst Jim could not take any step because he was already deceived. “Come with me,” the strange man whispered, Jim went but with anger and fear in his heart. Crouched in the cage with his eyes locked, he remembered the struggle and the suffering in the Workhouse, because of his mother’s death.

He tumbled and rumbled as the rocks touched the wheels in the way. After one hour he heard, “Here we are sonny,” and he was filled with excitement. Fearful and downhearted, hopeless and breathless Jim stepped out of the cage, as light shone on his face.

Few years later Jim opened an orphanage named after his sisters ‘Lizem Orphanage ‘ and soon he was a owner of an international company to help street children. Gurpreet
