Field to bowl

Make delicious, seasonal soup while listening as a tale of trickery unfolds.  As you wait for your soup to cook make your own bread and butter to accompany the soup.  In our community garden allotments identify and explore seasonal vegetables growing there.

Step back in time & cook a spring meal

In the Morning, help collect and process nettles for a soup and
elderflowers (if available) for pancakes and have them with a wholegrain
porridge – a spring meal that would have been eaten throughout the
historical periods being studied. The afternoon activities will depend on
which part of the curriculum you will be linking this to.
