If you have a story to share about your potato growing experiences or perhaps want to read about other inspirational reports from schools taking part, log on ‘your stories’ at www.potatoesforschools.org.uk - it is a great way to share ideas with other teachers and children and finally has your class compared their potatoes with the ‘potato expert’?  With live images updated daily it’s a great visual aid for the children and can be shown on the big screen in the classroom – www.potatoesforschools.org.uk
