Youngsters showed off a variety of skills and entrepreneurial spirit as they created their own recipe book.

Pupils at Wayland Junior Academy created Souperia, a soup cook book, with proceeds going towards the school.

The book came in a selection of covers, all designed by the children, and included varieties of soups such as curry parsnip, spinach, Polish borsch and pea and ham.

Pupil spokesman Kallam Painton, 10, said: 'The books have 32 recipes which were all brought in by children and teachers.

'We are trying to raise money for the school to get new cookers.

'We have done 150 copies to start with but we are going to print some more off to sell at the Norfolk Show. We already have 80 pre-orders.'

Siobhan Eke, TEN Group business coach, said: 'The children have really got behind it. They have been so enthusiastic which is great to see.

'They have designed all the posters, three different covers and had all the idea themselves.'

The book has been sponsored by the National Farmers' Union East Anglia and Watton restaurant Italian Job.
