This half term the gingerbread man sent the children an email with a picture attached (technology link) showing the children what he had found in the field on his way home to the old lady. The children saw a picture of an object buried in the soil with just some rope hanging out.
The children went outside to investigate what the gingerbread man had found and tried to pull it out. The children found that the object was very heavy and so they needed to work as a team to try and pull it out together. Exhausted from all of their hard work the children went back inside and received a telephone call from the gingerbread man thanking them for all of their help. It was an enormous turnip! He told the children that nursery could have some to explore looking at, feeling, smelling and tasting. Yum yum!
