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.
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!
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.
