Pumpkin Prose

Stanmore Public School The Pumpkin Prose

There’s a huge pumpkin in our kitchen grown in our very own Kitchen Garden. We thought we’d let the students have some fun by writing a story, a poem, making a diorama or drawing a picture about our Stanmore Pumpkin.

Our resident author and library assistant, Ms Deb Abela, has some ideas to help with their creation.

Think about:

  • There is something special about this pumpkin. What is it?
  • How did the pumpkin make it into the Stanmore kitchen?
  • What if the pumpkin were stolen? Who did it and why? Was it an alien? A hungry chicken? A giant?
  • What if the pumpkin came to life? What happened next?

Or students can come up with their own original idea for a story. Make it funny, sad, scary, action-packed. The choice is theirs!

  • Maximum length: 200 words
  • All entries in by Monday, March 30
  • Bring entries to the library and put them in the orange box

Entries will be displayed in the kitchen and the library.
