Our Year 2 students have taken up the potato challenge through their involvement in the WA Potatoes Seed for Schools program this year. Our materials package from WA Potatoes arrived earlier this term with instructions to have our seed potatoes planted by end of term. So the race was on to get them in.
Mr and Mrs Cogger had chosen Wednesday as the day to plant the potatoes. However, the weather was wet and wintery. We kept watch all morning for a break in the weather. Unfortunately 2B missed out on getting their bed of potatoes planted as during their Science lesson it was ‘pouring’. Finally there was a break in the weather for about 15 minutes and Mrs Cogger called Mr Cogger and ordered him to ‘meet 2G at the veggie garden now!’
Here are a few photos of the students planting the seed potatoes. WA Potatoes Seed for Schools will be following our potato planting journey. The Year 2 students will be learning about tubers and seeds next term and how they are different.
