    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.

Arjun Street Child story ending

streetchildren1The minute when Jim fell asleep, he woke up again and saw a tall strange contemptible, mean  and nasty looking person.  He thought,’Who was it?Why was he here? Shall I hide?…’ Jim was terrified and petrified, exhausted and drained and he didn’t know what to do! All he could think of, was to get away from everything as fast as he could.

Suddenly, the insensitive man grabbed Jim by the collar and chucked him out the of the tent, without asking any questions. Jim hesitated. He thought, ‘Shall I find Rosie or the Workhouse?’ He chose Rosie’s house. He rapidly rushed through alleys.  He found Rosie’s house, but Rosie wasn’t home. Emily and Lizzie opened the door, very surprised to see someone, but all they asked him was, ‘Who are you?’ because they didn’t recognise Jim as their brother.

Rosie suddenly appeared from behind the door, Jim hardly recognised her, as she changed a bit.  She kindly offered him a job and explained to Emily and Lizzie that he was their brother. The sisters were so delighted that there brother was back, because they only heard great stories about him. Smiling with a little grin on his face, Jim began working very hard. Jim sadly shared with the sisters the news about their mother that had died. He continued the job Rosie gave him in a quick, short time and finished it just in time for supper.

For the first time  in two years Jim had the supper he dreamed for. He had chicken soup with  a nice hot cup of coffee. Jim was lucky enough to sleep under a roof, because they had some space left in the kitchen. He was not sleepy and tired enough and all he could think about was his ma. Knowing that his mother had died, he was thinking about planning  a proper funeral, but he had forgot to tell Rosie. Lizzie and Emily sobbed all night and they didn’t even get to hear their mother’s last words. The siblings were depressed and upset, sad and a little disappointed, because they were not there to support their mother.

They woke up in the morning and they just washed their faces, then they all began with their daily jobs.  Going upstairs to Rosie, Jim  told her that, “Ma has died”. Rosie cried so heavily, that the Lordship heard her. Soon after Lordship came down the stairs and the siblings quickly hid under the table. Some of the Lordship’s friends were there and made fun of Rosie, because she was crying so heavily. Jim could hear the laughing, he considered that he should go upstairs and tell the people to be quiet. But he decided not to. The Lordship came to Rosie, though Rosie mumbled, “Please can you go away.” The Lordship went away and then the siblings came out of their hiding place. Jim lumbered and muttered to Rosie, “She was my mum, you know and I loved her as much as you did. Also, we went everywhere together.”

Rosie said ” OK now lets forget about it”. Meanwhile the sisters were chatting Jim ran to the door and just then someone knocked.  Although Jim decided that he was opening it he was a bit scared and wondered who could it be? It was Judd who had been on holiday to Spain. Whilst all that time Judd had been away Rosie told him ” that I  had been suffering”! Soon it was bedtime for the children but Jim did not want to got to bed. Arjun
