    healthy wrap writing

  • Oct 10th

    For my outdoor classroom, so children can record how they make their autumn stew or soup, using ingredients they find outside. The children are learning about autumn, and going on an autumn walk with their class. This will link their learning between what they do in class with the Reception and Year 1 teachers, with what they learn about in the outdoor environment. They can then also repeat this activity at home if they wish.
