This week we have been story telling using the traditional tale of Jack and the Beanstalk. It has been a lot of fun learning the special story telling words and actions. Such as suddenly, next and happily ever after. \n\nAny visitors to our classroom this week would have heard the giants roaring in the home corner and giant beanstalks being built outside. We also loved using the puppets and props to retell the story to our friends.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nWe have also completed some writing about plants. Our sunflowers have started to grow up out of the soil and this inspired us to write sentences about how plants grow.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nWe have been busy making work for our display board on plants and growing. It has been a challenge to make sure our cutting is accurate. The sticking was messy work.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nAlso this week Mr Lewis ended up with bright pink and blue hands after helping us to make our papier maché eggs.\n\n\n\n\n\nWe also worked on a little surprise that we have tried to keep very quiet about….\n\nNext week we will be finishing our own Jack and the Beanstalk stories as well as preparing for Easter.
