Pumpkins Pumpkins Pumpkins!!!

This week, we read the story ‘We’re going on a pumpkin hunt’ by Goldie Hawk and then we went on a pumpkin hunt around school to see all of the wonderful pumpkins that the children have brought in from home. We also listened to the story ‘Pumpkin soup’ by Helen Cooper. This inspired us to prepare and make our very own delicious pumpkin soup! Some of us explored pumpkins at Forest School, and we buried the pulp underground as a tasty snack for the mini-beasts.

What a wonderful half term it has been! All of the children have settled into school brilliantly and we are all so proud of everybody. This half term, we have learnt lots about ourselves and got to know each other very well.  Next half term, our theme is ‘Seasons and Celebrations’ which will include; Seasonal changes, Christmas, Cultural celebrations, Our environment and Colour mixing.

Reminders...

  • Water bottles need to be brought in daily which children can access throughout the day.
  • Please remember to read with your child at home and sign the reading record after reading.
  • Please sign and return the ‘Forest School’ permission slip.
  • Please complete homework and practice verbal spellings at home.
  • The correct school uniform must be worn daily e.g. School jumper, tie, shirt/polo top, pants/skirt, black school shoes.

Many thanks,

Miss Kennedy.

Thursday 21st October

Today at Forest school, we cut open a pumpkin and took out the seeds and the pulp. We then dug a hole in the ground to bury the pulp. This will be a tasty snack for the minibeasts underground.
We also collected our own sticks and made ‘God’s eye’ crafts using string and wool. 

Wednesday 20th October

This week, we listened to the story ‘Pumpkin soup’ by Helen Cooper. We then prepared our own pumpkin soup, using our cutting skills, listening carefully to the instructions.
