As part of our work on Jack and the Beanstalk, we have been learning about plants. We have investigated the parts of a plant and discussed their functions.
Children in the Foundation Phase enjoyed a range of activities linked to the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. Here are some of the measuring activities undertaken.
We were challenged to build three houses for the Three Little Pigs using editable building materials.
After discussing the properties of each material, we predicted which house would stay standing if the wolf blew it down.
We discussed things that we would keep the same during our experiment.
We built our houses in small groups and thought about how we were going to construct each house to ensure it stayed standing.
As part of our topic on ‘Fantasy and Fairy tales’, we were pleased that Jack (Jack and the Beanstalk) visited us last week to inspire us with our ‘Mantle of the Expert’ planning for the next half term.
He needs our help as he is fed up of living so close to the giant and he want to move house to a nicer area. We have suggested that he and his mother move to Knighton. Over the next few weeks we will be finding out information about the local area and reporting back to him.
