Yr 5 and 6 go to University!

Last week Yr 5 and 6 children were lucky enough to have an Explore Science day at The University of Westminster. They took part in a variety of activities that included walking around the campus and lecture theaters, finding out more information about all the different fields that comes under the umbrella of ‘Science’ and finally taking part in experiments. The children really enjoyed using their scientific knowledge to help them complete the tasks and finding out about different jobs that they could potentially do when they are older.

Sutton Who?

This week Year 5 visited the British Museum to find out some more information about the Anglo Saxons and in particular about a burial site called Sutton Hoo. We recently learnt that the Anglo Saxons liked to¬† bury their dead with their belongings because they believed that the dead would be able to use these belongings in their next life. Shortly before the start of World War Two, archaeologists discovered a massive Anglo Saxon burial site in Sutton Hoo in Suffolk. They discovered the remains of an old Anglo Saxon King along with all his possessions and even one of his old ships. People were astonished to discover how well preserved some of the kings belongings remained even after all this time. The discovery lead to a new wealth of knowledge being unearthed about the Anglo Saxon times. Many of the items that were excavated at Sutton Hoo are now displayed in the British Museum and Year 5 were fortunate enough to see some of these belongings first hand. Have a look at some of the things we discovered…

 

Year 5 are Singing Superstars!

On Tuesday 4th December, Children from both Year 5 classes participated in Spitalfields Music Festival at Rich Mix Arts Centre in Bethnal Green. Both classes took part in various workshops with the organisation that assisted the children in developing their creative and musical talents. Both classes produced their very own original songs all based on Heart and Breath and they were assisted by professional musicians who played alongside them. Every workshop they had with Spitalfields geared them up for this final performance in front of members of the public, other schools and other musicians. The children sang with confidence and passion and did Osmani proud. Very well done Year 5!

 

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.

A very well done to all the children from all the schools who took part in this fun and friendly competition!

There were books from various religious backgrounds, books about history, politics and the world around us. The workshop was great fun. We walked around the treasures gallery and collected nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs from the various books on display.
