Science & Growing Potatoes

So, how's everyone enjoying the start of Spring? 

We've been back in to our routine today :-) 'Table Time' this morning - including reading, English comprehension, spellings (for DS) and some new science workbooks I bought at our local pound shop! 

I bought 2 copies of the age 7 book, as although DD is 8 1/2 and can work at a much higher level, I thought it might be fun for the kids to do something together as we tend to work separately in the same space.  It was :-)  They really enjoyed working on the same thing together and DD enjoyed reading the questions to DS and it spurred him on to want to take turns of reading the questions too! So we got some inadvertent reading practice in too :-) 

We also planted out our potatoes that we have been chitting.....

If you don't already know about this scheme,  see  Grow Your Own Potatoes.  Registration has closed for this year, but bear it in mind for 2017 :-)  

We are a little late in starting, but we got them planted out today and DD noted the weather on our progress chart - so let the growing begin!   DD is on Team Rocket and DS is Team Rudolph (these are the varieties of seed potatoes we were sent). 

I'll let you know how we get on :-)
