This Week in P1S…

On Tuesday morning we were absolutely shocked to discover a great, big, ma-hoosive beanstalk in the corner of our classroom! Let us tell you how we think this appeared and about our learning this week…

On Monday, we received another letter from the dragon saying he was so pleased we had decided to help rebuild Fairyland. He gave us some gifts to help us begin building – ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ story, pots, compost and beans. We got runner beans and then at the bottom of the envelope we discovered MAGIC BEANS! We planted our own beans and the magic beans to see what would happen.

On Tuesday we were so excited to see that the magic beans had grown into a beanstalk! We have spent time this week getting to know the story of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ to see what might happen next in our classroom.

To help us remember the story we have planted beans of our own (they sadly don’t grow as quickly as the magic beans even when we water them!), built beanstalks from Lego, making our own story books, puppet shows and playing ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ in our house corner.

We can’t wait to see what the Dragon will send us next!
