‘A love for God, ourselves and others’


Week 2 - Jack and the Beanstalk

Monday 27th April


This week's challenges will be based on Jack and the Beanstalk.


Phonics: Please keep practising your phonics every day - 10 or 15 minutes is all you need to do. Please continue to work through the Phase 3 sounds at your own speed. There are lots of Phase 3 resources available in the Phonics Phase 3 section.


Tricky words: Please keep practising the Phase 2 and 3 tricky words. Can you think of a sentence with a tricky word in it?


Reading: It is important that you continue to read every day. Try reading ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ every day with your mum or dad...or brother or sister so you know the story really well. Have you tried to read any of the Phonics Play Comics that I have uploaded?


Drama: Could you dress up as Jack, the Giant or any of the characters and act out the story? Or could you retell the story to your teddies? Would you be able to retell the story to your mum or dad?


Writing: Can you write a simple sentence linked to the story? Are you able to imagine how the different characters were feeling - could you write a simple sentence as one of those characters? Could you write a sentence to describe the beanstalk? How did the Giant feel when he lost his hen? How did Jack feel when his mum threw the beans out of the window? Get mummy or daddy to take a photo of your writing and send it to me or put it on EExAT.


Maths: Keep practising writing your numbers to 20. Can you put the correct number of beans with the same numbered beanstalk? Can you crack the Jack and the Beanstalk addition code? There are lots of maths resources in the Jack and the Beanstalk folder. Email me a photo of you working or upload it to EExAT.


Science: Have a go at one of the Jack and the Beanstalk science experiments that I have put up – would you be able to ‘Grow a Bean in a Bag’? Could you create your own ‘Glove Garden’?


Art & Design: Can you make your own beanstalk (maybe with a kitchen roll tube) leading up to a castle in the clouds?


Lucky Dip: Surprise me! Send me a photo or video of you learning to do something that I wouldn't expect!


If you want more to do, below you will find lots of activities linked to Jack and the Beanstalk.


Good luck! smiley
