Autumn Pumpkins!

We were able to explore an autumn vegetable this week as part of our Food and Celebrations topic. An adult helped us cut open the pumpkin and taught us about how it grows in the ground. Then we scooped out the seeds to plant more. It was so much fun!

An adult cut open the orange pumpkin and we scooped out the insides.
We scooped out all the seeds. There were lots of them! “It’s very slimy” said the children.
We put the pumpkins inside and kept the seeds. We smelt and felt the seeds and learnt that the seeds and the pumpkin can be eaten. The children suggested we should plant the seeds to grow our own pumpkins for next year!
