Children at Eastlands Primary School and nursery in Rugby had a spooktacular time at their pumpkin party.

The fun has helped raise £40 for the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.

Children and staff Claire Ray-Etienne, teacher, Lisa Dunphy and Grace Prendergast, early years educators, all dressed as pumpkins or in orange to take part in themed activities.

These included decorating pumpkins with tissue paper, decorating pumpkin faced biscuits and counting pumpkins made from squishy orange play dough.

The nursery teacher said that the theme of orange pumpkin had been chosen as many of the nursery children had noticed the number of pumpkins in the shops and had wanted to join in with an age appropriate celebration.
