Next event: 26th to 31st October 2020
The pumpkin trail
STEP 1: Paint, decorate and/or carve your pumpkin and display it outside or in a window. Add a Friends of Ivy Chimneys School Pumpkin Festival sign which you can colour in. (There is also a sign available which makes it clear you won't be inviting trick or treaters which you can download here.)
STEP 2: Take a photo of your pumpkin and upload it to the school’s Google Drive (a link will be sent to everyone by Parentmail) - no children in the photos please as its a public website. Here's how you upload your photo:
- Save your photo as your child’s first name, initial of surname, and class (if you don’t, we can’t name the winners). You will need to do this on a PC or Mac, rather than on a phone.
- Go to the google drive address (which will be sent by ParentMail) and click on the folder for your child’s year group. Once in there, click the “New +” icon on the left side of the screen and upload your child's pumpkin photo.
STEP 3: Go for a walk around Epping and see how many pumpkins you can find - or view pumpkin entires online! Winners will be announced here on 2nd November 2020.
The scavenger hunt
STEP 2: Get dressed up and join us for a socially distanced hunt from 4pm till 6pm on Friday 30th or Saturday 31st (or any time during half term) - have a socially distanced chat with your friends and swap tips!
STEP 3: Tick off as many items as you can find from the list and have fun!
