This week we read the story Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper. The story explored the friendship of a duck, a cat and a squirrel and their fondness for pumpkin soup. By the end of the story the characters learned the important lesson of working together and why it is important to be a kind friend.
Many of our challenges this week involved having ‘kind hands’ that could make something for a friend. Friendship cards and friendship bracelets were gifted to friends and even the teachers too.
We used the pumpkin seeds to help with our counting, created newspaper cats and placed tails on squirrels using leaves.
At the end of the week, we read the Rainbow fish and created paper plate fish to represent the fishes in the story.
