We grew potatoes! 

It was back in May when we received the grow your own potatoes kit, we began growing them in the classroom and then transferred them to a grow back in the garden. We've kept checking on them when ever we're outside and decided on Tuesday it was finally time to harvest them.

We were amazed to find over 25 potatoes of all shapes and sizes! It was lovely to dig in the mud to find them. The children really enjoyed it. We're going to use the potatoes tomorrow in little chefs to make wedges and a potatoe and chive salad, keep an eye on twitter for the pictures! 

We officially only have 5 more days together in Hatchmere! What a fantastic year it has been. The reports for each child go out on Monday and we look forward to seeing you on the parent drop in session on Wednesday (3:15pm-5pm). We're looking forward to having an exciting final week with the children. 

Have a lovely weekend, 

Miss Hume, Mrs Lloyd, Mrs Lathaen and Mrs Dodd
