This week in Year 1 we have been exploring pumpkins. On Monday three special pumpkins arrived! We wanted to find out which pumpkin had the most seeds. Everyone estimated the largest pumpkin would have the most seeds.

Then we had great fun scooping out the pumpkins and using our counting strategies.

Our results were:

Pumpkin : 575 seeds

Pumpkin 2: 552 seeds

Pumpkin 3: 516 seeds

This meant the smallest pumpkin had the most seeds! We were very surprised!
