Family Bike Ride

Well done to families for braving the rain on our family bike ride this morning! Setting out from Cayley School, we hugged the river, going past sights including Canary Wharf and Greenwich, before ending up in the Isle of Dogs. A quick snack of bhajees and chocolate, some running around in the park, then the rain started coming down...and it didn't stop until we got back to Stepney!

A huge thanks to James, Felix and Jeremy from the Bike It! team for organising the ride so well. Hopefully we can do it again next term when the weather is a bit kinder!

Kew Gardens

Magical Summer Stories

Families experienced magical storytelling workshops in Redlands garden today. The storyteller Rez Kabir worked with a professional musician and an amateur potion maker (Ben!) to inspire families to come up with their own stories.

Redlands school garden was the perfect setting; a herb garden provided ingredients for magic potions, animal statues became characters in the stories, and the decking was a great venue for a big sing along.
