Jasper's Beanstalk

Our book for this week is Jasper’s beanstalk. The children have enjoyed listening to the story and predicting what might happen next. The children have thought about which other stories are like Jasper and his beanstalk.

During the week the children have had the opportunity to plant a bean and predict what will happen next. The children have also talked about how to care for their bean plant, which has shown staff lots of the children’s knowledge about their understanding of the world.

The children made long and short beanstalks in the play dough and added leaves to their beanstalks. On our Funky Finger table the children had the challenge of measuring how long their beanstalk was using the unifix cubes and then writing the amount next to the beanstalk.

We are hoping the beans will start to grow just like Jasper’s did!
