The children were so excited about the prospect of Halloween, telling us daily about the costumes they had bought or made and how they intended to celebrate. We thought we should make the most of their enthusiasm and bought some different types of pumpkins for the children to look at. They were amazed at the different sizes of pumpkin available, and surprisingly most of the children actually preferred the tiniest one! We then cut open the pumpkins and let the children investigate what was inside. There were some very interesting words that came from our investigation. These are just a few of them - smelly, squishy, mushy, gooey, slimy, slippery!
We are always very busy in FS2! We want our children to have fun whilst also becoming independent learners.
