Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize 2018

Osmani have been selected to participate in the Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize 2018.

We joined over 300 other schools, clubs and youth groups specially selected from across the UK to choose the winner of the 2018 prize. The Prize celebrates the best books that communicate science to young people in an accessible, creative way.

Our judging panel of keen scientists from Year 5 have enjoyed reviewing the shortlisted titles and have cast their votes. Their unanimous decision was Optical Illusions by Gianni A. Sarcone and Marie-Jo Waeber followed closely by Scientist Academy by Steve Martin.

We are eagerly awaiting the final decision to be announced at the Award Ceremony on the 15th November.

OSMANI ARE CHAMPIONS!

Last week Osmani took part in the E1 Basketball finals competition. We were up against 5 other E1 schools to see who would be victorious. The children played wonderfully well – using just the right amount of pace, skill and aggression. We dared to hope that we could go all the way and after a nail biting final against Kobi Nazrul – Osmani were named champions of 2018! A very well done to all the children from all the schools who took part in this fun and friendly competition!
