On Thursday 16th June 2016, Osmani had its annual Sports Day! This year was particularly special, because as well as having lots of sports activities and games to take part in, we also had a very special guest at our school. Olympic triple-jump athlete Nathan Fox came and delivered an inspiring assembly where he talked about how he achieved his goals and why it is important to persevere. We also had an amazing opportunity to work with Nathan to learn different athletic and sports skills in a workshop. It was a spectacular event!
Look out for Nathan Fox at the next Olympic games in Rio!
On Friday 27th May 2016, Osmani celebrated its 30th Anniversary as a primary school.
The theme for the day was the 1980’s so we went back to the future!
Staff and pupils came out in their best retro 1980’s costumes so the school was a sea of bright colours. Neon pink and green being most popular!
Each year group participated in an activity that was linked to learning about the 1980’s. The children thoroughly enjoyed learning about the different fashions of the day, significant events, as well as what cartoons were popular during this decade.
Osmani is fortunate to have ex-pupils who are currently staff members. So Year 6 pupils used their researching skills to interview Osmani’s ex-pupils to find out what life was like for them as pupils during the 1980’s and 1990’s. They presented their findings in a special assembly.
After the assembly pupils were treated to a special 1980’s cinema experience with KS1 watching The Little Mermaid and KS2 watching ET. What classics!
To party in style, children enjoyed celebrating our 30 years with a class party whilst also listening to 1980’s pop classics. This all happened whilst our governors and business partners enjoyed being hosted by Remi and other members of the senior leadership team to celebrate this momentous occasion.
We ended the day’s exciting events with a big sing off of Stevie Wonder’s ‘Happy Birthday’ a classic 1980’s hit! Click here to view a short clip of the Happy Birthday sing off.
Pupils and staff thoroughly enjoyed the day and we all felt proud to be part of our amazing school.
