On Monday 20th January , the children in Year 6 were given a free workshop by St. Giles Trust,
The workshop 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.
On Monday 25th November, Y6 went on an fascinating trip to Center of the Cell. Centre of the Cell is a science education centre based at Queen Mary University of London. Here the children witnessed research scientists at work as they entered the centre.
During the session, children were able to visit the Pod where they played interactive games to learn about the amazing world of cells, the human body and the latest medical research. These interactive games were enhanced by films projected onto the ceiling of the Pod which introduced the concepts of cell biology and medical research.
Y6 also took part in a separate interactive presentation about the heart and learnt the importance of being healthy.
They had a great time and learnt a lot of new facts.
On Thursday 31st October, Y6 were very fortunate to take part in and watch Concordia’s Man in the Moon Performance. During the show, the Man in the Moon introduced children to the beginnings of industry (the Stone Age), the discovery of oil and to the invention of the world’s most wasteful material – plastic.
The children loved the show. They joined in with the songs that they had learnt in school with Concordia.
Thank you Concordia for a wonderful project.
The London Symphony Orchestra collaborated with Tower Hamlets Arts & Music Education Services to lead music workshops with Year 6 at Osmani Primary School. The aim of the project was to encourage more children to take up learning endangered instruments (bassoon, oboe, viola and French horn). The pupils had a fantastic time and were inspired by the project.
The children are having a amazing time. Here is a few pictures from yesterday’s activities.
Another fun day filled with lots of activities.
Last academic year, Year 6 wrote persuasive letters to the Mayor of London, in which they raised concerns about plastic waste. Read the reply from Sadiq Khan.
