WH Smithy

Smithy Street have opened up a family homework shop which sells materials to help families with their homework. All proceeds go to 'Friends of Smithy Street'.

Business was brisk this lunchtime; families were buying lots of coloured card, dice and other items to help families with the games themed family homework. Well done Smithy Street for such a brilliant idea!

Family Games

The fifth and final parents' session run by PATH (Play Association of Tower Hamlets) took place at Halley this morning.

The PATH team have been visiting each Stepney Partnership primary school to encourage parents to play games with their children. Parents had a great time creating giant snakes and ladders boards, and learning a range of other games to play with their children.

The family homework for the holidays is games.

Forest School

Forest School came to an end for 20 children (10 from Redlands, 10 from Smithy Street) this afternoon after an amazing 6 week stint full of adventure!

Today we were making 'forest faces' on the trees, mixing up magic potions, painting daffodils and having a go on the new Forest School assault course!

Every child went home with a daffodil to remind them of their Forest School adventure.

Year 5 Family Taster Day at Stepney Green

A great taster day for Year 5 families at Stepney Green!

17 families across the five primary schools spent a half day at Stepney Green to get a taste of secondary school. Mr Nzuza (English), Ms.Hewitt (Literacy) and Mr Giorano (P.E. ) delivered excellent family lessons. Well done to Rosie Scourti at Stepney Green for pulling things together.

Here is a selection of comments from parents and children:

“It made me feel great"
"I learned how it is going to be when I come secondary"
"I finally had fun with my Mum"
"I learned different things like how to play table tennis propley and be a bit confident"
"It made me confident because I can stand up to people and say my opinions"
"It felt more confident because I spoke in front of different people"

“it made my daughter feel more confident about speaking out loud in front of a group of people "
“It mad me confident by reassuring me that a lot of help is available, especially for new Yr 7s"
"It was helpful because it helped my child on what to expect from secondary school and how I can support her when she comes to s school"
