Pumpkins continued …

Red Class children had their own ideas for what to do next with our Pumpkin Patch Pumpkins. They communicated well & worked together to gather resources & make decisions about how to carry these out fairly & safely. They carved, scooped & decorated the pumpkins. We had lots of great learning & discussion about how to use all of our senses to investigate. Children described the feel, smell & look of the pumpkins & later tasted roasted pumpkin seeds. We used the seeds to create art work & with adult support experimented how the uncooked seeds can absorb colouring. Our Staff have been just as immersed in this learning & finished the day with story time lit by our pumpkins.
