We have won a national soup making competition with Kids Country which was judged by MasterChef finalist, Simon Spooner.
After lockdown, Miss Knowles (the class teacher) and Mrs Roper (TA) decided the children needed a project to unite them and build on their teamwork skills. We are all new to gardening, but decided to be ambitious and grow tomatoes, potatoes, radishes, rosemary, carrots, kale and a pumpkin. This inspired our soup recipe as we wanted it to be all made from home grown vegetables. The whole of the Year 3 class worked collaboratively to maintain, harvest and water the garden on a regular basis. So far, we have made our own potato salad, soup and the children have suggested making a rosemary flavoured bread!
