Today, there was great excitement at school as lots of wonderful book character pumpkins arrived. Five tables were covered in the most amazing range of root vegetables painted, collaged, carved and sculpted to represent hungry caterpillars, pandas, Mr Men and many others!
Morrigan Crow, Max the Cat, the Tiger who came to tea… the creativity was fabulous! Everyone enjoyed going through the entrance hall and admiring them; parents, staff, children, visitors- all were impressed.
And then, in the afternoon, the lovely Steve Antony joined us to judge all the entries. We had four categories- EYFS, KS1, Y3-4 and Y5-6. It was a very hard job, but he managed to select a winner for each category. Steve announced the winners at two assemblies and each winner was given a copy of one of Steve’s books which he signed and a book token.
He spoke to the children about believing in themselves and read his brand new story, ‘Amazing’ which is not out yet. The children were really excited about being the first to hear this.
What a fantastic day! Huge thanks to Steve for coming to judge all our wonderful pumpkins!
