Today we explored a pumpkin. Before cutting it we all had a feel. We used our strong muscles to lift the heavy pumpkin! Its skin was smooth and shinny.
Next was time to chop off the lid. The pumpkin was quite smelly, some of us thought it smelt like oranges but most of us didn't like the smell.
Inside the pumpkin was full of seeds! We all had go a putting our hand inside and pulling out some of the seeds. It was really slimy and slippery! We continued until the pumpkin was nice and empty.
We saved all of the seeds and put them to dry ready to use for something creative. Then the pumpkin was carved in the design of our contest winner!
