    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.

    '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.

Street child by Gurmant

streetchild-1Suddenly, Jim saw a bold and brave, dwarf-like man stared at him, while he got out the colossal carriage. The dwarf-man yelled at Jim in a very loud voice saying, “Oi, come here you little boy!” Jim found out that the dwarf-man’s name was Grimy Nick and it was the first time he had been friendly to any of the children. After a steady and quick job for Grimy Nick, Jim finally got some sleep. Secretly, the white moon hung above Jim, while he was looking at the stars and, in his mind, he saw his mum crying.

The next day Jim decided to escape, so he ran as quickly as he could to get away. Unfortunately there was a pack of dogs surrounding him. Luckily, he saw some stale meat and gave it away to the pack of dogs.

The Chase

Jim stopped immediately when there was sign saying, ‘LONDON’, but he really never cared about anything around him, so he still carried on walking. Jim was aware of many police men around him, so while he was walking, he had to duck quickly at the right time, because if any policeman saw him, they will send him back to the Workhouse. He kept on ducking. Suddenly a policeman saw him and ran after him. Jim sprinted as fast as could. Jim didn’t even know were he was going. In front of him a dead end appeared and he looked at the four directions he saw. No sign of the police. Then he saw a poster of the circus! He got the poster of the circus and it was only for a Shilling. Jim search for a shilling all around London. Jumping and excitedly  Jim was so  relieved when he got a shilling..

Circus and Dynamite

Jim went to circus and pretending to be a old  man so he gave a shilling and went through and watch the show calmly and filled with excitement. Just then he saw Rosie, Lizzie and Emily  in the 25,000 crowd. Jim was shocked when he saw them their personality had chanced a lot.  A thief, called Jack Steve sneakily put dynamite in the circus. The circus got blown up!! 13,323 died and the rest were injured, luckily Jim got only  injured. Gurmant
