On Friday we had a giant surprise in year one…a huge beanstalk had grown up to the sky and two large feet were dangling down above us! We then received a letter from Jack who recounted his trip up the beanstalk to the castle! He told us how much he enjoyed climbing the beanstalk and told us that we should try too!
We thought about how we could do this and decided we needed to use our imaginations…we then went into the hall and ate magic jelly beans…the beans turned us into beanstalks and we created a short dance movement to show how the beanstalk would grow. We then moved under the parachute and pretended it was the the thick, dark leaves of the beanstalk. We thought about how Jack might have pushed his way through to reach the top. After that we climbed the ladder to reach the castle and stole the giant’s golden hen and the golden chocolate eggs!
It was so much fun!
We can’t wait to find out more about Jack’s recount in our literacy lessons.
