The children in Room 3 have been busy having lots of spooky fun this week. We had our own (home grown!) pumpkin patch in class and enjoyed exploring the story of ‘Splat the Cat and the Pumpkin Picking Plan’. We went jumping in leaves after sweeping them up, had lots of fun picking the perfect pumpkin while taking in the sights and smells of the patch then it rolled all the way home! The children particularly liked our very interactive spooky singing session. We have explored lots of interesting toys and objects which might dance, sing, light up or blow bubbles – some amazing visual and auditory tracking has been happening. Halloween messy play was a big hit…we tried out jelly, gloop, spaghetti and rice crispies – some of us even tried it out with our feet! We participated in the school pumpkin carving competition and took great delight in getting hands on with a drill to make a starry night pumpkin. Everyone looked fantastic in their costumes on the big day itself and we even celebrated a Halloween birthday. Well done Room 3 for your very active participation.
