Hello Red Class! I hope that you are all well. Today we are going to be learning about potatoes. Potatoes are root vegetables, which means they grow underground. We can eat potatoes in many different ways. They can be boiled, roasted, mashed or baked. How do you like to eat potatoes? In our story, Oliver's Vegetables, what was Oliver's favourite vegetable? How did he like to eat it?
Make your own Mr. Potato Head with your favourite vegetables/fruit. Think about what would make good features for his face. You could make Mrs. Potato head as well!
Watch this video about how potatoes are grown.
You can try growing your own potato plant at home.
Watch this video to see how to do it.
Potatoes make really great stampers for printing. Ask your grown up to cut a potato in half and make a couple of stampers for you to make a lovely pattern.
I hope you enjoy these potato activities!
