Listen to the story!

Enjoy the retelling of this traditional tale, Jack and the Beanstalk in audio book format. Listening to stories improves concentration, imagination and develops familiarity with different types of texts. This audio retelling of the traditional tale of 'Jack and the Beanstalk' will be sure to keep your child excited, focused and listening well. 
Challenge - Ask your child to retell the story in their own words.

You say this sentence and your child writes it down. Look out for tricky words and sound out each word.


The  harp  sang  a  song.


Challenge 1 - if your child can write this sentence easily add in some describing words e.g. The magical harp...

Challenge 2 - Can they write another sentence about the harp?


I can estimate.

I can count 1-1 reliably.


How many beans can fit in the giant's hand?


  • Draw a giants hand on a piece of paper (not toooo big as you are going to fill it with beans or some other small objects eg. buttons, small lego, buttons).
  • Now draw round your child's hand in the middle of the giant's hand.
  • Fill your child's hand with beans and ask them them to estimate how many they think are there. Write the number down.
  • Count the beans. How close was your child's estimate?
  • Now we are going to fill the giant's hand. Will the number be smaller or bigger than your hand?
  • Now continue to fill until the giant's hand is full. Write down their estimate.
  • How close was their estimate?


I can count in 2s 5s and 10s

Challenge - After counting the beans show how we could group them and count in 2s 5s or 10s. Is it quicker to count 1-1 or in 2s 5s or 10s?



I can read and match pictures to words.

Challenge 1 - Choose a word and write a sentence using that word.

Challenge 2 - How many sentences can you write?


Jack and the Beanstalk (Part 2)

In this lesson, we will revisit the traditional tale "Jack and the Beanstalk". We will use the previous learning in note duration to read some simple rhythms through symbols. We will also climb the beanstalk again to further develop our understanding of pitch.

Name that story!

Read the clues to your child and see how many stories they recognise.
