Leigh's Nurseries Newcastle

Pumpkin Play!


The Sweetpeas have been enjoying exploring our pumpkin shape sorter. The children were fascinated by the pumpkin and were keen to get stuck in! We explored the different shapes and using our fine and gross motor skills we put the pieces in the missing places. The children used trial and error through their play re-evaluating what they needed to change in order to succeed. They were interested in what they were exploring which meant we were able to extend our pumpkin theme play. The children enjoyed using the scoops to explore the inside of the pumpkin and used their senses to explore it in other ways!

Lots of love,

Leigh and the team xxx
