From Potatoes to Plant to Share

The children in Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) at The Merton Primary School have been busily homing their green fingers this Spring and Summer.  
During the Spring the children planted potatoes after exploring the story Oliver’s Vegetables by Vivian French. The children successfully harvested a great crop and enjoyed homemade chips to celebrate their efforts. 
They have been planting a variety flowers, vegetables and herbs which they have shared with the school community as part of the Soil Association campaign ‘Plant to Share’.
They have nurtured a vegetable patch in the school garden in which they are currently growing; courgette, pumpkins, carrots, beetroot, peppers, corn, cabbage, lettuce and much more.
