Harvesting our potato crop

Back in March we planted some potatoes as part of the British Potato Council's schools competition.  We had an email last week saying it was time to harvest our crop and weigh them.  So Year 1 took advantage of the sunshine this afternoon and  went to dig up all the potatoes.  Before we went outside we all held a 2KG bag of potatoes and estimated if our own crop would be lighter, the same as or heavier than 2KG.  Most of us estimated that our potatoes would be heavier.

After we had dug up the potatoes we washed them and then weighed our crop.  Can you guess how heavy the crop was??????  Use the voting buttons on the right of this page to say what you think.

  1. I think it's fab that Year 1 are getting to grow their own vegetables. What a great way to learn information.
