Before the holidays, Reception class continued their ‘Traditional Tales‘ topic by sharing the story Jack and the Beanstalk. We read the familiar tale and enjoyed discussing the different characters which appear in the story. The children had opposing views on the character ‘the Giant;’ some felt he was a good, misunderstood character and others felt he was just mean!
The children wrote a letter to the Giant, to ask him questions about how he behaved when Jack stole the gold. We also had lots of fun getting our hands full of mud whilst planting our own beans. We are looking forward to seeing how they grow!
