We are independent writers!

During Autumn 1, Year 1 took a walk to the park, whilst there they spent time using their senses (their new learning in Science)  to explore signs of Autumn. They worked in groups to explore the park and when they saw signs of Autumn they took pictures of them on an iPad. Once back at school they put the pictures into pic collage and used these as a reference for their independent writing. Initially they thought of adjectives to describe each of the objects that they saw at the park, then they built these into a sentence relating it to their senses. For example, ‘On my walk I can see shiny, orange leaves.’
