Good afternoon Reception Class. Thank you for your lovely messages and pictures for Teacher Day. I erally appreciate them and I absolutely love my job because of the fabulous children I get to teach. Thank you to all of your parents and carers too for engaging with the home learning and helping you at home. Have a lovely afternoon in the sun!
Good morning Reception Class. Your Gingerbread Man biscuits looked delicious yesterday!
Today I have some more activities for you which are based on a different story. Today you will be looking at Jack and the beanstalk.
Watch and enjoy the story of Jack and the Beanstalk https://learnenglishkids.britishcouncil.org/short-stories/jackand-the-beanstalk Watch again – or read the book if you have it.

You could use a buzzer, whistle or anything ‘noisy’ for your child to use when they know the answer! Questions could include: What did Jack swap for the cow? What was special about the beans? Who lived at the top of the beanstalk? How did Jack escape the Giant?

I have set work for you to complete on Mathseeds. I have also added a game for you to play with someone at home. Who will win?
Can you measure the beanstalk which you all grew in class? How many leaves does it have now? If you haven’t still got that one then measure another plant and keep checking each week to see how much more it has grown.
