Potato plants

Our potatoes are growing well in Mrs Worby's garden. We will be picking them for the Great Queniborough Show on 30th September. How many potatoes do you think are hidden in the soil?


Phonics is taught daily in Year 1 for 20 to 30 minutes. In Foundation Stage children have worked through Phase 1 and most of Phase 2, in Year 1 we are expected to teach to the end of Phase 5.
