Potato planting in Reception

Reception plant potatoes to be grown in our solar dome.

On Wednesday 27th March, in keeping with our Supertato theme, the children were given the opportunity to grow their very own potatoes in Reception. The children absolutely loved it, some used a trowel to move the compost into the buckets and others just used their hands, it was very mucky work! The potatoes have been moved to the solar dome and it is the children's responsibility to water them and look after them. They are very excited to see how many will grow. This links very well to our work on Understanding the World and observing and discussing how plants grow.
