Super Soup!

In this unit of food technology, we will be designing and making our own type of vegetable soup. Year 3 had the chance to taste some delicious soup that was freshly made in our school kitchen, by Chef Jason! We tasted 3 soups:

Tomato and basil soup

Chunky vegetable soup

Red lentil and tomato soup with bacon

We evaluated the soups and talked about what we liked and disliked about them. We thought about the texture, smells and tastes of each of them. Some of us were trying these flavours for the first time and really enjoyed them! We now have some great ideas for what ingredients we might include in the soups that we make at school. It has been wonderful to hear that some of you have been making soup at home with your families!

What flavour soup is your favourite? What texture do you prefer? If you haven't already, could you have a go at making soup with your family at home?

Please continue to read with your child on a regular basis. The reading record should be completed as often as possible and will be checked when they read with an adult at school. Children should read school books and anything else that they enjoy! The children will have the opportunity to visit the school library once a week too. Please make sure your child’s library book is back in school the following week so that they can return it and get a new one.
