Jack and the Beanstalk
During Spring 1, in the Foundation stage, we were reading the traditional tail ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and our topic was ‘Growing’. Our big question was ‘What happened to Jacks beans?’ we really explored this during our trip to Hollingworth lake. The Ranger really made this a magical experience, where children explored the different elements of the story. We climbed the stairs to re-enact Jack climbing the beanstalk, we searched for magic strings to thread on to the harp and finally we found some magic beans, which the children then planted.
