Welcome to Reception!
This half term our learning will all be linked to the text - Jack and the Beanstalk and Plants, growth and change
A poor country boy, trades the family cow for a handful of magic beans, which grow into an enormous beanstalk reaching up into the clouds. Jack climbs the beanstalk and finds himself in the castle of an unfriendly giant.
Children will be given opportunities to explore how plants and beans grow. They will monitor and track the growth of planted beans linking to Understanding of the world around them. They will be immersed in story book language and learn key opening paragraphs and learn about the way stories are structured.
