Last week in Nursery we read the story "Pumpkin Soup" by Helen Cooper. The children were so interested in the different pumpkins in our investigation area that one child asked if we could make pumpkin soup so that's exactly what we have done this week. The children helped chop the onion, garlic, pumpkin and pepper and watched an adult fry the ingredients, add the vegetable stock and blend it. Most of the children tried the soup and some of them thought it was "scrumptious", "tasty" and said "it tastes like pumpkin soup". This activity was great for the children's speaking and chopping skills. It also helped some children learn new vocabulary like onion, garlic, pepper, pan, spoon, mix it, blend it, cook it. If you want the recipe please ask!
