potatoes

The PTFA invited us to take part in a potato growing competition.  Mr Lee came into school to explain how to grow the best potatoes.  Mr Lee, a local farmer, kindly agreed to donate seed potatoes and grow bags.  The competition was split into three categories - FS/KS1, KS2 and older children/adults.  The judging took place the Friday before the Summer Fair.

We gave out 111 growing kits in total with all the proceeds going to PTFA funds.  The money raised went towards new outdoor play equipment.  Thank you to everyone who took part.

Mr Lee showed us how to plant our potatoes and what environment was best for the potatoes.
