Pumpkin Pie!

We have been continuing with our autumn theme by exploring some seasonal crops like these strange shaped gourds and of course the pumpkin.



Mrs Peters had to use a very sharp knife

and lots of strength to cut open a pumpkin.



We used magnifying glasses to look closely at the seeds and the pumpkin flesh. It was a beautiful orange colour. 






We also discovered that Mrs Eite had added pumpkin puree to the playdough this week smelt delicious and made us wonder if we could make a real pumpkin pie.



What a surprise we got when she said yes!






Everyone had a go at mixing and then we waited while the pies cooked in the oven...





We found that pumpkin pie is very sweet to eat!
