Stone Soup for Sale
Reception and Year 1 loved reading and performing the traditional tale, ‘Stone Soup’, where a crafty soldier was able to convince villagers to share their food. Each villager only needed to share a little bit, but with all the ingredients combined, a delicious and nutritious soup was enjoyed by all!
Our fun with this story continued when we decided to make our own soup. Nobody brought stones, of course, but each student brought a fresh ingredient from home (sweet potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, onions, corn, parsley, green beans etc.) and together, we learned how to make a healthy and tasty soup!
And unlike the story goes, we did not sell the soup; we were more than happy to let the rest of the lower school taste our yummy creation!
