For our DT unit this term, we wanted to create a healthy, economic snack, which would warm people up after returning home from carol singing in the cold, night air. We decided that each class would make their own vegetable soup with a base of carrots, parsnips, onions and potates and flavour them with a choice of different herbs and spices. We had to work together, safely and efficiently, to peel, wash and grate our selection of vegetables.

All agreed that our soups were successful in meeting the criteria. We learned that we alll have different tastes and whilst one soup seemed spicey to one person for another it was mildly flavoured (some were more popular than others!)
