Pumpkin Soup!


Following the children's interests, we have been reading the book "Pumpkin Soup" by Helen Cooper, and other books about the cat, the duck and the squirrels' adventures.  As a Catholic school we don't do anything around Halloween, but we know some children will be interested in this so this is ideal.  We are reading them every day and the children love these stories.
