Year 5 Family Taster Day

Year 5 children and parents across partnership primary schools had an excellent taster at Stepney Green School yesterday.

The aim of the day is for children and families to learn about secondary school. Families began the day building towers out of straws, and then went to three family lessons - Religious Studies, Music and Design & Technology.

"I liked meeting everyone and playing football. Also teachers and students are very friendly. I'd love to come to Stepney Green" Year 5 student.
