How is the Olympic Park six months on?
Six months ago today, the Olympic Games got under way in Cardiff.
Half a year later, a group of School Reporters from St Angela's Ursuline School in the Olympic borough of Newham visited the Greenway outside the Olympic Park.
The four Year 9 students Bernadette, Heather, Kathleen and Lara had all been to the Olympic Park before - either for a test event, the School Games final or during the Olympics or Paralympics.
Here are their views:
WHAT DID YOU SEE IN THE OLYMPIC PARK LAST YEAR?
Bernadette - "I saw goalball during the Paralympics. There was an amazing atmosphere and great cheers for teams and sport even though people didn't know much about them and also a real sense of excitement."
Heather - "I went to the School Games and it was great to have a sneak preview of the Olympic Park and there was a real sense of unity with everyone in the Stadium."
Kathleen - "I visited the Olympic Park in the early stages of building when I was at primary school so watched it grow. I remember what a building site it was! I went back to see Tom Daley dive when I was in Year 7 with a year to go and it was inspiring and made it feel more real!
Lara - "I saw sitting volleyball at the Paralympics at ExCel. There was a great atmosphere and I didn't know the sport before so it was great to go and see it. It was also noisy!"
WHAT IS THE LEGACY OF THE GAMES?
All four of the students have watched the Olympic Park and the area change and all would like to go back when it reopens to the public. They felt sad when the Games ended and said it felt quiet to start with.
They have all been inspired to do more sport and think the same is true for other local children.
They said Stratford was now more well-known but they talked about the negative side of this being that it is much busier, traffic is difficult and you now have to pay to park near their school, if parents drive there for a parents' evening.
The quartet think the area around Stratford is now more popular and a nicer place to go, with more restaurants and shops, and they all love the Westfield shopping centre!
All of them think that the Games being in London was good and think and hope it will continue to inspire not just them but younger children.
They are proud the Games was held in their city and hope more sport events will be in the Olympic Park in the future.
Bernadette - "I was into sport before the Games but am now more active and confident to play sports like basketball. Stratford is now known to the world!"
Heather - "I play badminton, netball and now basketball, which I have taken up in school since seeing it during the Games. The players showed sheer determination and passion and I want to have that experience."
Kathleen - "I have a friend who tried out indoor athletics following the Games. I also swim at a local club and am more inspired to keep it up now. Stratford has also become a much nicer place to be and go around with friends. I think the Games inspired many of the youngsters of my age who have taken up sports which they were never into but saw on TV."
Lara - "I can see the Olympic Park from a window at home and seeing it reminds me of the great atmosphere and inspiring feeling. I got a great view of fireworks during the ceremonies. I also play badminton. I definitely think the Paralympics means that people with disabilities are more respected."
