This week the girls in Reception read ‘Pumpkin Soup’ by Helen Cooper, about Cat, Duck and Squirrel. Every day Cat slices up some pumpkin, Squirrel stirs in some water and Duck tips in some salt to make perfect pumpkin soup... until the day Duck wants to do the stirring...
The tale is a funny, rhythmical story about friendship and the girls thoroughly enjoyed it.
After reading the story it was time to examine pumpkins inside and out. They investigated with their hands, eyes, ears, and nose.
