This week, the children in Years 5 and 6 were given free workshops by St. Giles Trust.
The workshops focused on preventing gang exploitation, by both dispelling the myths which glamorise gang life and crime, whilst also exposing the serious exploitative and grooming tactics that take place in order to get young people to join gangs and commit crime.
The children found the workshop very informative and came away with real tools to prevent recruitment and exploitation.
Thank you St. Giles Trust. The trainer was excellent and the children were engaged throughout. A vital workshop for young children today.
What a week! This week was Maths week at Osmani and we had so much going on.
Tony Charles presented maths shows and workshops with a magical twist relevant to the pupils learning. The shows included routines where repeating patterns, finding the difference, 2D/3D shapes, number bonds, recalling multiplication facts, place value, partition skills and many other areas were explored.
We also had fun making kites. Did you know that kite making and flying is a fun way to learn Science, Maths, Art and History? The earliest kites date back to 9.000 to 9,500 BC.
We also had a maths costume competition where some fantastic prizes could be won such as dartboards, pool tables, board games and much more. All we had to do was to be creative with our costumes.
On Thursday 3rd May, it was our Maths Week assembly. Y4 were the hosts and did a great job. There was a competition for the best dressed maths costume and there was also a bake off. All the cakes were sold to raise money for the school. It was a very successful event.
Take a look at our amazing day.

Have a look at some of the cakes that were submitted by the children and their families. You have to agree they looked magnificent!
To celebrate Maths Week, Osmani held a number of different challenges. These challenges ranged from a maths rap/poetry competition to a maths building family/class challenge.
Fantastic prizes were up for grabs.
It was wonderful to see the whole school take part in the event and there were lots of structures made by classes ranging from domes, a structure of Canary Wharf, to structures of sofa beds and table and chairs.
The children really enjoyed making their structures and were keen to tell the school about them.
There were many winners across the challenges but our overall winner constructed an amazing clock using paper and cardboard with her family and wrote some amazing maths poems. Well done winner!
We finished the event by singing birthday celebrations to the Queen, who had turned 91.
