Scratching and Rapping

At Pumkin we are always looking for ways to improve out teaching content. Staying fresh and exciting for kids is essential. One of the areas we are working on is the presentation of our phonics activities.

At the moment we are using the same activities for vocabulary and sentence presentation. This is not fair or fun. So, we have hired a Band and a DJ to do the job for us.


Our DJ is from New Zealand and has a very impressive resume. Having played with 'mango and the fruit bats' on their last world tour, DJ Kiwi has great experience. He is a specialist in Phonics scratching.

"You know some DJ's play that club music and get the dance floor moving, I prefer edutainment. I educate and entertain at the same time. Ya feel me?" - DJ Kiwi

The band are legends in 'the game'. The Vegetaband have played the Pumkin theme tune to all the Pumkin shows. They are also behind the songs on http://pumkin.com


"Bringing our funky style to the phonics teaching will bring fun and wild excitement to the kids, we have worked for a long time on this phonics set and we really hope it rocks" - Lenny The Lemon, Drummer for The Vegetaband.

  2. Your Pumkin World game is absolute crap, I mean, the Hungry Pumkin game is obviously not teaching manners, seeing he yells, "NO, I DON'T WANT THAT!" and throws something across the room if someone picks the wrong food. He also just says: "Give me the pizza." So demandingly. It has caused countless memes in the realm of the internet. If you don't want to be made fun of, I suggest you improve that.
