P4 are growing Potatoes

Primary Four have entered a competition to grow potatoes. The challenge officially starts tomorrow (Tuesday 3rd of March). Over the next few weeks and months the class will be observing and recording the different stages of the plants as they grow. We are also going to be using our very own compost made by our worms in the wormery. Hopefully if all goes well, we will have a weigh in on the 23rd of June and then get to cook and eat them.
The first stage is called chitting. We will be taking photos of what this looks like to show you soon.

  1. Hello Primary 4
    It is great to see what you are learning. I am now teaching a P6/7 class at Macmerry. We are also growing potatoes and like you are hoping to be able to eat them in June. What we don’t have though is the excellent soil from the wormery. Good luck with your competition.
    A big HELLO to you all from
    Mrs Greenwood 🙂
