Jack and the Beanstalk

Still image for this video
Hope you guessed that the story was Jack and the beanstalk.

If you have not had the chance to plant anything like Mrs White or Miss Hubbard why not have a go at planting your own beans. Can you get yours to grow taller than the one Jack climbed.

We would love to see your attempts.

Have fun! 😀

Tuesday 12th May


Morning, today's challenge is to re tell the story. First read the story to your child so they are reminded of it.

Then show the children the pictures and let them tell you what is happening in each picture.

Hopefully, they will now know the story and can tell others about it.

Wednesday 13th May



Talk about who was in the story of Jack and the beanstalk. What did they look like, how did they feel throughout the story?, What did they do etc.

Once you are familiar with the characters, pick you favourite and draw them. This could be on a piece of paper, old cereal box, outside with chalk etc.

When you have made your masterpiece, write a sentence about you character. You were getting really good with your phonics and Mrs Parker has been giving you activities so use your knowledge to write some sentences.

Remember to upload them to Tapestry so we can all see them.

Have Fun!

Morning, todays activity is to act out the story of Jack and the beanstalk.

You could use teddies, Lego or even make a pantomime with your family.

If you record it, please upload so we can watch.


Friday 15th May


Today we are going to make our own beanstalk.
You can make one by practising your scissors skills and cutting out leaves and sticking them on the stalk.
You could go out for a walk and collect leaves using them to make your own beanstalk, either at home or on your walk.
Use you imagination on how to make you own beanstalk.

How tall can you make it?
Will there be a giant at the top?
If you were to do it again what would you do differently?
Remember enjoy your time with the children and talk to them about what is happening.

It looks like it will be a nice day so have fun and enjoy \the sun.
