    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

My ending of Street Child

streetchildren1The next morning when Jim woke up, he found himself in a room with planks of wood covered the windows, so he could get no sunlight, instead he found a cruel, vicious bulldog on his left hand side taking guard of him. Jim was quite bewildered, confused and scared, because he didn’t know whether he was petrified of dogs, especially of bulldogs which were placed right beside him! After a minute or two, a tall dark strange man appeared and said, “I am Grimy Nick and you know you are going to be kept captive in this room.” Jim shuddered and trembled with fear. He took his chance to be free, but as Jim was uneducated, he didn’t know that dogs have very sensitive ears. The dog awoke and growled at Jim and bit his leg, which was numb of the cold so he didn’t feel the pain.

Months later, the dog started to gain trust from Jim and began to be more friendly with Jim. Jim’s wounded leg began to heal. At last a day came when they decided on a plan to escape. He crept out of the door, very slowly and quietly and took his chance to be free. Jim ran for freedom, it was his lucky day! Sprinting and galloping, he was free, free at last! He was running to down the streets of London to stay with the other people on the streets near London bridge. His feet firmly gripping to the ground in case he slipped from the slippery icy roads.


Jim was living happily on the streets until a day came when a kind, generous British man took him to his home and adopted him. Jim had forgotten all about Lizzie and Emily. One day, when Jim was tucked up in his duvet he had a nightmare about Emily and Lizzie working as slaves in Judd’s house, where she worked for the Lordship.

The next morning, the man, who was called Barney, and Jim went to go and visit Lizzie and Emily, because of the nightmare that Jim had. When they arrived, they found that Jim’s nightmare had come true. They rescued the girls and discovered Rosie had betrayed them! With the two sisters, they went home and had a hot supper which they enjoyed very much.

A happy family for life

The next few years they lived in the same house that they lived in before, in that same cramped room with no space for even a person. A month later, they decided to move out because the families that lived upstairs were very disturbing and because of the small room they had. Searching and searching, they tried for a nice quite pleasant place to live in and settle down, but they had no luck.

Then all of a sudden, Lizzie, who was older than Emily, had a very bright idea! “Why don’t we go and live in our old cottage nobody would have bought it?” Barney curiously asked them about it. Lizzie and Emily directed  Barney to the cottage, where they once lived. It was their lucky day, nobody lived there, so they decided to buy it. It was cheap,  it cost 300 shillings and it was on half price as it was not kept in a good state. They moved in and lived very happily in their little cottage and never had any problems  again. Barney also put the three children in the local school. He was a kind and thoughtful man, who cared for everyone in the world. Annpreet.
