Pumpkin Soup!

This week at nursery the Morning Group made pumpkin soup.  We have lots of different kinds of pumpkins to look at just now in nursery, but one was bought specially for cooking.  It was cut open and we looked inside at the seeds and strings!  Lots of us worked to prepare the soup by peeling and chopping vegetables.  The ingredients we used were celery, onions, carrots and pumpkin.  When it was cooked it was blended together to “make it all soupy!”  We got to taste the soup if we wanted to and we voted to say whether we liked the soup or not.  We read the story ‘Pumpkin Soup’ written by Helen Cooper.  The boys and girls in the afternoon group got to try our delicious soup at snack time.
