….have been the focus in the first week of our ‘Growing’ topic.
We started off by examining a real potato very carefully and gathered the children’s ideas about what they knew about potatoes. Alex knew they grew underground and Judah explained carefully about how the potatoes he eats have orange inside. We thought they might be sweet potatoes? We made a list of different ways of eating potatoes :mash, boiled, fried, roast and of course chips!
Mrs Ajith cooked us some jacket potatoes for our snack!
We planted potatoes outside in a sack and will water them every day. Hopefully we can eat our own potatoes before the summer holidays!
