We have been continuing with our autumn theme by exploring some seasonal crops like these strange shaped gourds and of course the pumpkin.
Mrs Peters had to use a very sharp knife
and lots of strength to cut open a pumpkin.
We used magnifying glasses to look closely at the seeds and the pumpkin flesh. It was a beautiful orange colour.
We also discovered that Mrs Eite had added pumpkin puree to the playdough this week ...it smelt delicious and made us wonder if we could make a real pumpkin pie.
What a surprise we got when she said yes!
Everyone had a go at mixing and then we waited while the pies cooked in the oven...
We found that pumpkin pie is very sweet to eat!
