Children's choice: Jack and the beanstalk


This week the children voted for their focused story of the week and Jack and the beanstalk received the most votes. 


The children planned together to think of their own ideas linked to the story. The children were keen to make their own 3D beanstalk using junk modelling. 


We extended this further by adding mathematics and numerals when counting the leaves and adding numerals to the leaves. 


The children were very excited to plant their own magic beans and discussed the growth life cycle and what the magic bean will need to grow. 


To conclude out activities for Jack and the beanstalk we had a live puppet show and the children had the opportunity to have a questions and answers session with their own ideas and what they through would happen next.
