Careful pronunciation needed this week as Amanda and I talked to the children about how to chit potatoes!
We have loads of seed potatoes, Rocket, Maris Bard and Premiere as the year 1 classes are going to be growing them as well.
The children were amazed at the size of the seeds, having trouble understanding that they weren’t actually potatoes. A few pictures helped them to understand the process of growing them and we talked about the need for them to be kept in the dark.
Then we got busy setting them out in trays – some of them sprouting already, and put them into a coolish lightish place till they are ready.
