Children learn about the joys of harvesting in exciting potato project

The brilliant children at the Ofsted Outstanding Little Learners Nursery based at St Anne’s Church Academy in West Wick have been learning about harvesting and potatoes.

They began by planting some potatoes seeds in their vegetable patch and months later picked, washed and cleaned their crop.

With support from the Nursery Crew, the Little Learners chopped the potatoes and put them in the oven to cook. 

While they were cooking, the children sat and listened to a story called Oliver’s Vegetables.

Once the potatoes had finished cooking, the children all sat down together and enjoyed eating the potato wedges. 

Nursery leader Natalie said: “The children were very proud of themselves for their amazing potato harvesting leading all the way to eating their creations.

“It really brought harvesting alive and everyone had great fun. The potato wedges were also delicious!”

St Anne’s is part of The Priory Learning Trust.
