Pumpkin celebration

The Pumpkin Pentathlon was a real celebration of autumn.  There were some beautifully carved pumpkins, some fantastically sporty pumpkins and some worthy pentathlon winners.  Ollie won the sportiest looking pumpkin with his aquatic theme, closely followed by Matilda’s ballet shoe pumpkin.

We had 15 pumpkins competing in the exacting pentathlon course.  The events reflected the modern pentathlon with running (pumpkin rolling), fencing (knocking down pumpkin opponents), shooting (mud ball challenge), riding (2 circuits of the classroom on trikes) and a swim (river race).  Thomas was the fastest over the course with max coming in a close second.  The event was rounded off with pumpkin soup!
