Life in all its fullness


Hello Hairy Maclary Class. This week, we have planned your home learning around Jack and the Beanstalk. If you don't have a copy of the story at home, there is an e-book below for you to read. As well as what is below, you could build a beanstalk out of lego or craft materials. We'd love to see some photos of what you make.


Read the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. Think about how Jack would be feeling at different points in the story.


Perform the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. You could make some stick or finger puppets and perform a show to your family or use figures that you have at home, for example Lego people, to act it out. When you know the story really well, we'd like you to write the story down. You could make your own book with illustrations, type it out on the computer or use the writing frame below.


Below is a Jack and the Beanstalk game. Once you've played it, you could adapt the game to practise your adding and subtracting skills, for example, if you land on a purple square complete an addition question, if you land on a green square, complete a subtraction question. You could make your own version of the game with lots of different types of mathematical questions on.


If your grown ups are able to get to the supermarket or a shop to get some, we would love for you to plant a bean. Think about what your plant needs to grow and what you can do to look after it. Keep a plant diary and record each week what changes you notice by drawing a picture and writing a sentence next to it.
