William Byrd Primary Academy

Sow, Grow and Farm

In Year Five this term we have been learning about seasonality and farming in our Geography topic ‘Sow, Grow and Farm’ and in our DT topic ‘Eat the Seasons’.

Throughout these topics the children have discovered the features and characteristics of land use in agricultural regions across the world and learned about the meaning and benefits of seasonal eating. We explored recipes for vegetable soups and analysed the methods, techniques and nutritional information before creating our own recipes. We also discussed health and safety risks which could be encountered in the kitchen to ensure we were as safe and hygienic as possible. The children were then given the exciting opportunity to explore food preparation and cooking techniques including washing, peeling, chopping and grating seasonal vegetables to prepare their own vegetable soup! Yum! We enjoyed tasting our soups and evaluating and critiquing our final product.
