The pumpkins have been a wonderful feature of our classroom since the start of October. They continue to rot out in the garden and we watch and discuss this progress daily. The pumpkins have been lifted,stroked,sorted,written on and covered in jewels. They have been featured in stories,recipes and lists. They are so beautiful it seemed sad to cut them up but the resulting learning was fabulous. The seeds were extracted and have been saved to plant next year. The flesh was cut and examined. Some enjoyed running their fingers through the stringy bits. Others were not so sure.
Very happy learning
