The children in last sessions P2 class were recently delighted to hear that they had won the ‘Grow Your Own Potatoes’ competition held by the General Potato Council, by growing the heaviest crop of regional variety potatoes. Mrs Mackay and her P2 classes have participated in this competition yearly since 2010 as it offers many opportunities for learning throughout the curriculum. The children are pictured with their prize along with Mr Dare from Woodside Garden Centre who has supported the classes with this project since his eldest son was a pupil in Mrs Mackay’s class.P2 Potato Winners 2014
