As part of our world of work week in Nursery we invited a range of visitors to come and talk to us about what they do and how they help the local community.
We started the week off with a visit from the fire fighters. Nursery got to climb aboard the Fire engine and pretended to head out on an emergency call in school. We got a chance to use the hose and even dressed up as firefighters with their helmets. Nursery made cards and gave them out to the firefighters to say thank you for helping to keep us safe in the community.
We then had one of our mums visit us to tell us about her job as a nurse at the Royal London Hospital. She told us about her special job, where she helps mummies and daddies to care and look after the babies. We got a chance to listen for heartbeats using a stethoscope, check each other’s temperature using a thermometer and we even had a look inside her medical bag. We used this information to look after the teddies in our teddy bear hospital and learnt about our body.
Our last visitor was another parent of ours from Nursery who works as a professional photographer and author. He bought in his lovely canvases and set it up as an art exhibition. He told us about his love for Bangladesh and how his photographs have helped others to relieve their experiences of living and travelling in Bangladesh. We got a chance to talk about how to take photos, why we take photos and what we could see in his lovely photographs. The children loved the colours and the images and as a result were very keen on taking their own photos afterwards.
As part of our world of work week, Year 5 were very lucky to get an opportunity to meet Eloisa Henderson-Figueroa a freelance artist and designer. We found out many things about how Eloisa got into the field of art and design and all the different projects she’s been involved in since she decided that this is what she wanted to do. Her work has taken her all over the world and she also works as a designer behind the scenes on the CBBC children’s programme Art Ninja!
Not only did we get to hear all about Eloisa’s fun work adventures but we were also fortunate enough to be taught some cool sketching techniques and how we could create portraits of people – Picasso style! We had lots of fun learning all about how creative our futures could potentially be.
A big thank you to Eloisa from everyone in Year 5!
As part of World of Work week, Year 4 had a very special visitor who came in to tell the children all about his life as a police officer. PC Khalisadar, who is also a parent at Osmani, joined both classes to inspire and tell us about his very important job. The children were super excited and had lots of burning questions they wanted to be answered. We found out that you have to work extremely hard at school, especially in literacy, PE and ICT if you want to become a police officer. You also need to be brave, determined and helpful. His visit has inspired many of us to become part of the police force when we are older. What about you? Do you think you would make a good police officer?
We would like to thank PC Khalisadar for coming in to our school and answering all of our questions.
