    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!

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

Jim Jarvis and Dr Barnardo

streetchild-

A few months after Barnardo came to London, an outbreak of cholera swept through the East End, killing more than 3 ,000 people and leaving many families destitute. Under the Poor Law the only place such families could turn to was the workhouse. But rather than face the humiliation of being branded a ‘pauper’, many tried to survive outside the workhouse. Thousands of children slept on the streets and many others were forced to beg after being maimed in factories. During the cholera epidemic, Barnardo visited the homes of the poor to comfort the dying. This drew his attention to their plight and he began preaching in beer houses and on street corners. His sermons were often met with abuse, and he was frequently pelted with rotten eggs and even physically attacked. Undeterred, he opened the East End Juvenile Mission in Stepney – a ‘ragged school’ where poor children could get a basic education. One evening a boy at the mission, Jim Jarvis, took Barnardo around the East End, showing him children sleeping on roofs and in gutters. The encounter affected him so deeply that he decided to drop his ambition to go to China and to devote himself instead to helping destitute children.In 1870 Barnardo opened his first home for boys in Stepney Causeway. He regularly went out at night into the slum districts to find destitute boys. After he had gathered two or three and persuaded them of the benefits of life in his home he took them back to Stepney Causeway where they were given food, clothing and some work training.

Y5, Could you recognise a ‘familair‘ name in the above piece of text from Barnardo’s website? Click on THIS LINK to read more and you will also have great images to explore about Barnardo and his charity work.
