During the Summer term, Class 5 will be reading 'Jack and the Baked Beanstalk' by Colin Stimpson, which is a twist on the well known fairy tale, Jack and the Beanstalk.
Set in 1950's America, Jack and his mum run a little burger cafe. They are almost broke, so when Jack buys a can of baked beans with their last pennies, his mother throws it out of the window - starting a GIGANTIC baked beanstalk adventure!
The children will spend some time reading and exploring the text before taking part in various activities, including drama, to learn more about the different elements of stories. This story links beautifully with our Science study 'How quickly do plants grow?' and will provide a focus for non-fiction and poetry work.
We will continue to focus on developing skills in phonics, spelling and reading through daily Phonics, spelling and Guided Reading sessions. The children will also continue to practise their handwriting skills.
