Autumn in Wiltshire

As the evenings draw in and the temptation to slump in front of a  tablet, PC or old fashioned television screen grows proportionately, we look at ways to encourage children to get back to the real joys of autumn and winter. In our print edition (available on this site) our feature on traditional autumn games (P.16) shows how much family fun can be had with just a bowl of water and some apples. And, with Christmas just round the corner, we discover the West’s best winter wonderlands (P.6). 
Finally, we’re privileged to talk to one of the great British novelists of our era, Michael Morpurgo, author of 'War Horse' and many children’s stories, who shares his thoughts on school,  writing and World War I (P. 21). Have a great half term!
