We read the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and then investigated the characters and created Wanted posters for the Giant. The children were very excited about catching the Giant and we did a lot of drama and role play catching the giant. The children wrote plans about how to catch the giant. The Giant also left the children messages which they read and responded to.
Outside the children made traps to catch the Giant.
We planted beanstalks and cared for them.
We then looked at and wrote about the lifecyle of a frog and even had some real live tadpoles to look after.
We investigated colour mixing tints adding white to green to make our frogs.
