Blackberry Picking

Today I took my mindees out blackberry picking.  They had great fun and we covered lots of areas of learning – Physical development (walking, picking etc), Understanding the world (where our food comes from), Communication and Language (discussing which ones were ripe enough to pick etc) and Mathematics (counting them afterwards).

The National Trust have created a great list of “50 things to do before you’re 11 3/4” and “picking blackberries growing in the wild” comes in at number 21 so we can tick that one off. I’ve printed the list and am looking forward to ticking off some more with them.
