Jack and the Baked Beanstalk
We all know the story of Jack and the Beanstalk: poor boy finds riches by swapping his cow for some magic beans, climbing the beanstalk to a angry giant’s castle and finding lots of goods stolen from his family, including a goose who could lay eggs made of gold!
This term we are going to be reading a modern take on this story with some interesting twists! We will be using this text to develop reading skills and to provide an inspiring platform for lots writing. We will be developing sequencing skills (Year 1s) as well as pinching and adapting ideas for our own stories (Year 2s).
We will be continuing with daily phonics sessions (Year 1s) and spelling (Year 2s). Please encourage your child to work towards their spelling badges. This will help them to quickly and accurately spell words in their writing.
