One potato,two potato......


Today we unpacked our 3 seed potatoes. I ordered these through the potatoes for schools project. The idea is that we grow our potatoes along with another 1100 schools across the UK. On a set date in June we will dig up and weigh them. A digital camera is the prize for the heaviest crop. The website www.potatoesforschools.co.uk contains a range of resources to support the project. We used the whiteboard when looking up the website and played an interactive game about healthy eating. I don't even like potatoes......unless you count chips....or crisps

    Morag,

    Welcome to you and your class to the world of blogging.

    I look forward to following the development of your blog.

    It's looking very good so far.

    Perhaps it, or another blog like it, could be developed as a tool for your school's P7s making contact with our kids in S1 at DGS and become part of the P7 - S1 transfer process.

    Best wishes.

    Thanks Don
    I had been thinking along the same lines myself- I'll have a chat with Linda and Ellen about it and get back to you

    Registration is now closed for the potatoes, but schools can still join in by growing potatoes and use the resources. The web site has good links for a healthy eating project.
