    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

    We like to stop and think - before we do or speak.

    '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!

Street child – Simret

streetchild-2Jim escaped breathlessly from the Workhouse, without making a sound with his footsteps, he was shocked that no one knew he was about to ESCAPE!! This was now the time for him and without fear, but hungry, he started running.

When Jim woke up the following morning, he saw he was in a weird house with dirt every where  and it was spooky. Seeing a scary shadow, he was filled with fear, he did not know what to do, so he thought to look around the house and suddenly he had an idea. He thought to clean the house.

Just then, very worried, Jim hid beneath a bed like a mouse skimming through a door. He was scared. What was that? As something was getting closer… he was getting more worried, he was in a scary and weird shadow. With a fearful mind and with ripped clothes, he wondered, ‘What was that? How did I end up here? Should I hide or not?’ THINK! He desperately wanted to get out of the house, but was too scared.

Meanwhile, Jim was terrified and didn’t know what to do! Jim quickly thought what to do. He was crying and in tears.While he was crying, he remembered his sisters names and he thought about their safety. He decided to find his sisters but didn’t know where he was, so he started to look around and found them, but Lizzie and Emily did not know he was their brother. Jim started to get worried but as soon as Jim explained, Rosie came and told them that he was their brother, so then they remembered too. Simret
