To continue on from our potato planting, we have started exploring different potatoes by peeling them very carefully using a potato peeler.
First we talked about how to use the equipment safely and gathered together everything we would need. It was a bit tricky holding the potato, especially when the skin had been peeled off and it got a bit slippery and slimy, but we tried really hard and did so well. Once they were all peeled, we then explored cutting the potatoes using our knifes, cutting them into different sizes and shapes.
