Nursery Visit Spitalfields Farm

 

On Thursday 15th March, Nursery visited Spitalfields City Farm.

We were all very excited to learn about the different animals. We talked about where they live and how it was similar or different to where we live.

At the farm we saw sheep, goats, donkeys, ducks, chickens, pigs and some rabbits! We even saw some guinea pigs – they were so cute! We also talked about what sounds we could hear in the animals names so we could have a go at writing them when we got back to our class.

Lots of our parents were able to join us on our trip and they helped us to talk about what we could see, hear and how it made us feel. We all really enjoyed the trip and as always, we would like to thank our parent volunteers for their help and support.

Have a look at some of the pictures we took at the farm!

 

 

Year 6 and Year 4 Perform at the Barbican!

On Monday the 11th July it was a very special evening. To celebrate 10 years of the Tower Hamlet Music Service, a wonderful concert was held at the Barbican Theatre that brought together hundreds of children from across the borough in a diverse celebration of music-making.

Osmani Primary school was proud to be represented in the concert by 2 group of children, from years 4 and 6, who played the violin and the cello. For these children, the concert was the culmination of a year of dedicated rehearsals and music lessons both in school and at venues across Tower Hamlets.

On the night there were a lot of butterflies in tummies and nervous instrument tuning back stage, however once the children were on stage they performed magnificently and did themselves, their strings tutors, their parents and the school proud.

Each group from Year 4 and Year 6 played a variety of pieces from classical to modern music alongside an orchestra of children of a similar age.

Awe-struck from playing on a world-renowned stage in front of a packed audience, one child said, “That was amazing!”

It was wonderful to see the children from Osmani participating in such a unique and exciting performance.

“Look! It’s a sphere!”

 

We have learned the names for lots of new shapes and also been describing them too, by saying how many faces and edges they have.
