Planting Potatoes

posted in: Class 3 News | 0

As part of our ‘Food Glorious Food’ topic, KS2 have been learning about potatoes this week.  We found out when they first arrived in England and learnt about the Irish Potato Famine in 1845.  We wrote diary entries empathising with the Irish farmers and then planted our own potatoes in the school garden (hopefully they won’t suffer from blight)! We also munched on a few crisps whilst we were learning.
