Creating an Autumn collage with year 1

Year 1 have been consolidating skills from last week as well as developing their use of iPads. They used their knowledge of the seasons, and autumn in particular which they have been learning in science and combined this with camera and uploading from the iPads.

This morning, they took pictures of signs of autumn in the secret garden. Amongst the things they saw were…
– leaves on the ground
– autumn colours (red/orange/yellow)
– berries
– fungus

Here are some of the best pictures. Next week they will be creating a collage on the iPads using the Pic Collage app.
