Grow Your Own Potatoes
Yesterday was 'Potato Planting' day, all the schools around the country were planting their potatoes too. We planted the different varieties into two different grow bags. These bags were then watered and placed into the school garden.
We also had two spare potatoes which we used for the ‘Under the Soil Experiment’. Each of these two potatoes were planted in a plastic bottle which is covered in newspaper. As these potatoes grow we will be able to look at what is happening under the soil. The two bottles will be kept in the Hedgehogs classroom on the windowsill where they can get lots of light.
