Enjoying our Harvest

The children in Room 15 at Wakefield School describe their potato growing and harvesting process – and enjoy eating their hot chips!

Courtney Sian and Nixon happy with the harvest.

Gabriel’s potatoes.

The Room 15 children last year wrote to Bunnings to ask if they had any seed potatoes.

Sian took the letters to Bronwyn who works there. They were very kind and gave us lots.

In term 4 we planted the seed potatoes. They grew all through the summer.

When we came back to school this term we hunted under the hay for the new potatoes that had grown.

We found lots. We washed them, we chopped them up and we cooked them. We made chips.


They were hot.
They were good.
They were yummy.
They were delicious.
Thank you Bunnings!”Matai Kēreru Room 13, Year 1, Wakefield School
