This week, as part of our ‘Glitter and Glow’ topic, the year 2 children investigated pumpkins. They applied their estimating and measuring skills, looking at the height, weight and width of pumpkins. They also looked at the buoyancy of pumpkins and finally, they got very messy and counted how many seeds were in each pumpkin. The children decided it would be best to group and count the seeds in tens, which worked well. They couldn’t believe how many seeds were actually in each pumpkin, and enjoyed comparing their estimations. Perfect pumpkin work, Year 2!
