    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!

    You cannot write it, if you cannot say it; you cannot say it, if you haven't heard it.

Street Child – Harjaap

Frightened, terrified and tired, Jim managed to escape from the Workhouse. He grabbed for his cheese he saved for supper and ate it. Suddenly a boy, looking just like him, appeared in front of Jim and punched him. Waking up uncomfortably, he realized that two tall dark figures were standing above him. “Who are you?” questioned Jim curiously, “and why am I here?” One, slightly shorter than the other, helped him up. The woman was a shoe scraper and her dad looked like a salesmen. “Who are you?” asked Jim with a very confused look, whilst getting his belongings together.Streetchild

“I’m Lame Betsy and this is my dad, Roger Grim.” Replied the woman, “but who are you?” Jim explained his  whole story to the woman and to her dad in detail. Her dad got suspicious. “If we let this beggar stay, the police will find out he’s here and then we’ll all be in trouble!” Now that Lame Betsy knew who he was, she had to do something about Jim! “Can we please let him stay; just for one night?” “Okay, just for one night, then I’m going to sell him away to an old friend of mine.” replied her dad in a firm voice. Jim had to do something; AND FAST!

Suddenly he had an idea! If he could get Tip and pick him up, they could both find their way back to Rosie in the Lordship’s mansion! Jim quickly ran upstairs to his bedroom, got a piece of paper and made a diagram of how he was going to escape from Lame Betsy and her dad. He immediately rushed down stairs and asked Lame Betsy what the best way was to Rosie. ‘Once I get all the equipment I need,’ Jim thought, ‘I will escape to Lizzie and Emily in the Lordship’s kitchen where I’ll be safe.’

See the next post to find out about Jim acting out his plan……
