The Very Hungry Caterpillar Tea Party

 

Everyone in Bees has worked extremely hard to earn their ticket for the tea party. Together we planned what we wanted to do, made decorations and prepared the fruit whilst talking about healthy eating and practicing our safe cutting skills. On the day we danced, played games and ate lots of healthy food (as well as a few treats).

We were very lucky to have a theatre company visit our school to perform their version of Jack and the Beanstalk. It was clear how well the children knew the story and we all had an uproariously good time. Here are a couple of pictures, can you name the characters? Ask your children what was different about the version of the story they told!

As you may have seen from the huge beanstalk that has sprung up in our classroom, our special story for this half term is: Jack and the Beanstalk. Here is the version of the story we are learning and the story map as well. 

 

Jack and the Beanstalk

 

Once upon a time there was a boy called Jack, who lived in a cottage with his mum.

 

Early one morning, he woke up and went downstairs.

“We are very poor” said mum, “go and sell our cow.”

 

So off he went.

He walked and he walked and he walked until he met an old man.

“I will buy your cow” he said, “Here are 5 magic beans.”

 

When Jack got home mum was furious and threw the beans outside.

 

The next day there was a gigantic beanstalk. Jack decided to climb up.

When he got to the top he saw a huge castle.

He opened the door and tiptoed inside.

There he found a bag of gold, picked it up and set off home.

‘Jingle jangle, jingle, jangle’ went the gold.

Suddenly the giant woke up. “Fee, fi, fo fum – I smell the blood of an English man!”

Jack ran all the way home as fast as he could.

 

 

The next day Jack climbed up the beanstalk again.

When he got to the top he saw an enormous castle.

He opened the door and tiptoed inside.

There he found a golden goose, picked it up and set off home.

‘Honk honk, honk honk’ went the goose.

Suddenly the giant woke up. “Fee, fi, fo fum – I smell the blood of an English man!”

Jack ran all the way home as fast as he could.

 

The next day Jack climbed up the beanstalk again.

When he got to the top he saw a colossal castle.

He opened the door and tiptoed inside.

There he found a golden harp, picked it up and set off home.

‘Brrrring brrrring, brrrring brrrring’ went the harp.

Suddenly the giant woke up. “Fee, fi, fo fum – I smell the blood of an English man!”

 

Jack ran all the way home but the giant chased him.

 

He climbed down the beanstalk as fast as he could.

Finally Jack reached the bottom, got an axe and chopped it down.

 

CRASH went the beanstalk.

AAARRGGHH went the Giant.

 

Jack and his mum were not poor anymore and they lived happily ever after.

Our 'special story' for the half term is 'The Little Red Hen'. To help the children grow in confidence story telling, reading and writing we will be learning to tell the story using 'talk for writing'. Below is our story map, see if your child can tell you the story using these pictures to help them sequence the tale. Below that is the text we use to tell the story as a class, why not try it as a story at home and encourage them to join in.
