This week in English we will be learning all about the story "Jack and the Beanstalk."

Monday - Listen to the story of 'Jack and the Beanstalk' 

If you have the story at home - read the story and compare the two versions. 

Either: Write a sentence about your favourite part using 'because'

If you have compared the two stories - which one you prefer and why. 

Tuesday - Recap on the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. 

Think about different adjectives to describe the giant and Jack. How many adjectives can you think of? 

Choose one of the two characters and write a character profile about them. Look at the different adjectives. 

Wednesday - Retell the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. Can you retell the story using these adverbials of time - first, next, then, later, after a while, finally etc. How could you retell the story? Could you make your own book? In class we would have been making a beanstalk and each leaf tells a sentence of the story. We would love to see your creative ways to retell the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. If you are a computer whizz, you could even create a story on the computer.

Thursday - Can you come up with a range of ways we could change the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. Could we change the characters? Could we change the animal (cow)? Who lives at the top of the beanstalk? Is it a beanstalk that grows? Can you brainstorm some ideas on how we could change the story of Jack and the Beanstalk?
