Reception spent the day today investigating pumpkins. The children described them, counted the lines on them, found out how tall they were and measured using blocks, and finally we investigated if the would sink or float! Reception know…… do you?
Some of the children had a go at making square pumpkins! Yes you heard right! We listened to the story of Spookly the square pumpkin and the children set off on a challenge. Some of the children made lovely cubes using only straws and play dough!
The children spent the afternoon making good guesses…. they had to predict how far the pumpkin would roll! I think it surprised a few of the children.
Later in the week the children will open a pumpkin and investigate the inside!
