There’s so much to celebrate as autumn appears in all its glory, so why not get outdoors and enjoy the experience?

Sweet as honey

Work outside with a small group of children to make a honey and apple plate to celebrate Rosh Hashanah (29 September 2019). Place some apples on a chopping board and show the children how to carefully chop them into enough pieces for each child in the whole group to have one. Arrange the pieces of apple on a large plate surrounding a central bowl of honey. (NB Children under the age of 12 months should not be given honey as there is a risk of botulism.) At snack time, invite all the children to sit outside and pass the plate around the circle. Show them how to take a piece of apple, dip it in honey and say ‘Shana Tova’, which means ‘Have a good and sweet new year’.
