Obama Class Are Gardeners!

As part of our DT project, the children have today planted potatoes in bin liners. 

We have chitted potatoes in the classroom and they have already begun to grow tubers and shoots.

This afternoon, we filled bin liners with 8-10cm of compost. Next, we put the potatoes into the compost.



Finally, we covered the seed potatoes with more compost and watered the bags.


Over the next few weeks we will watch for shoots to grow and cover the shoots over with more compost until the bags are full.

The plan is then to cook them in different ways and design and make our own dips to eat them with!
