Family trips over half-term

A memorable half-term of family activities! On Monday and Tuesday in glorious sunshine, around 170 people from Stepney Partnership schools visited Southbank and enjoyed events at the Imagine Children's Festival. This included meeting 'real' dinosaurs at the Dinosaur Petting Zoo, and an author talk from Anthony Horowitz. On Thursday families went to a very busy Natural History Museum.

The trips were part of Stepney Partnership's regular programme of holiday trips and activities, and this time linked to the dinosaur themed family homework.

The heat was hosted by Smithy Street, there are two more heats to go which will take place at Redlands and Halley. Good luck everyone!

Family Podcasting at Stepney Green

"I found it fun and interesting because we were learning how to use new computer software"
                                                               (Mikaail + Mum)
"Really exciting because we were doing fun things, learning new skills and spending time with my Dad" (Samah)


Stepney Green School hosted a series of family podcasting sessions after school for children and their parents.

Children interviewed their Mums and Dads about a wide range of topics including recipies, memories of primary school and gardening!

Parents and children then edited the soundtrack, adding music and sound effects.

You can listen to some of the podcasts here.

Thanks to Hilary Norton from Halley for delivering the workshops, and to Ms Swift for co-ordinating things at Stepney Green.
