Jack and the Beanstalk

The Little Gems have learnt about the traditional tale of Jack and the Beanstalk this week. The children have drawn pictures of Jack, and made their own beanstalks and golden eggs with play dough.  Shape names have been remembered in our Jack & the Beanstalk game.  The Little Gems have planted bean seeds and we are now waiting for them to grow…..





The Giant is here!

Class 1 Little Diamonds have had an exciting week! Whilst reading the tale of Jack and the Beanstalk, we found evidence of them around school.  Footprints appeared in the strangest of places!

To check which footprint belonged to the Giant and which to Jack, we had to compare and measure them.  We used the terms longer and shorter for the footprints. We also checked how tall we are and compared our height using the terms taller and shorter, just to make sure there were no secret Giants in our class! Come and see our height chart to see who is the tallest Little Diamond and who is the shortest.
