Tower Hamlets Book Award

Every year, our keen Year 6 readers take part in the annual Tower Hamlets Book Award. The children regularly get together in our library, discover new exciting authors and stories and then they discuss and debate about the books they have read. It’s a fantastic opportunity for them to share their joy of reading and develop their speaking and listening skills.

Last week, our children attended the grand finale at the East Winter Garden in Canary Wharf, they met many authors and had a great time! On top of that,  one of our Year 6 pupils, Mariam, won a book prize for her artwork for The Boy at the Back of the Class. Well done!

Summer Reading Challenge Celebration

Last month, we celebrated the Summer Reading Challenge in one of our assemblies. Two Idea Store representatives visited our school to congratulate children that had completed the reading challenge over the summer holiday. Twenty-six of our pupils were given certificates and medals and we were happy to see that our children enjoy reading in their free time. Let’s see if more children challenge themselves next time!

Celebrating Black History Month!

On Monday 14th October 2019, Osmani Primary School celebrated Black History Month with the help of professional story-teller, Wendy Shearer.  We enjoyed listening to stories about Anansi the Spider and joined in with Wendy to retell the stories through role-play.  The children used music, props, instruments and drama to retell these traditional West African tales with help from Wendy.  Through these stories we explored the morals and values being taught by the example of  Anansi the Spider and the important message that every person is special and unique, no matter how big or small.

Throughout this month we have been learning about different key figures in each year group, including astronauts, poets, designers and engineers. We look forward to displaying the children’s work for parents to view and enjoy in November.
