Worcester pre-school are having fangtastic fun discovering and beginning to explore the fa-BOO-lous treats of Halloween!
We have been wickedly weighing, mysteriously measuring, spooky selling and cauldron cooking pumpkins in our pumpkin patch, whilst recognising pumpkin numbers, reading stories to the spiders and making our imaginations spark and come alive!
Exploring gruesome pumpkin guts through freezer bags, we looked at the colours and the mixture of seeds and gloopy pulp with its slimy texture. The children loved this ghoulish investigation, so we evolved and explored further by mixing, whisking and straining to create our very own pumpkin pies!
Using our tongs and developing our fine motor skills, the pre-schooler’s really enjoyed carefully picking out different Halloween shaped pasta and then sorting them into the correct bowls, avoiding the creepy cobwebs!
All of the children (and adults!) can’t wait to continue with our Halloween celebrations.
