A week full of tricks and treats and Hallowe’en celebrations has come to an end. Autumn is all around us and the Big owls haven’t missed a chance to play with the piles of leaves that have collected in our playground. Throughout this week the Big Owls explored what pumpkins are by looking at their size, shape and colour. They loved touching the stringy and sticky insides of a pumpkin learning to use a variety of words to describe what they saw, touched and smelled.
A tray of pumpkins, dry pasta, lentils and oats has been the Big Owls’ soup-making station. They stirred and mixed, patted and crushed to make the best pumpkin soup!
But the fun wasn’t over, yet! Ghosts and skeletons, witches and night queens, they were all invited to our nursery Hallowe’en celebrations. A big pumpkin hunt was organised by the whole school during which the Big Owls had a wonderful time looking for and counting pumpkins in the school grounds. Big, small, tall and fat, we found 112 pumpkins in total! What a wonderful time we all had! Thank you to all the staff that produced or made a pumpkin for our hunt!
