Jack and the Beanstalk!


Recently at nursery the snapdragons and sunflowers have been learning all about Jack and the Beanstalk. The children used their communication, language and literacy skills as they listened to the story and discussed it.
After this the children used their personal, social and emotional development and expressive arts and design skills to paint and decorate the leaves for the beanstalk, sharing and taking turns throughout this.
The children enjoyed the story so much they decided to extend their play by acting out parts of the story by pretending to climb the beanstalk and being chased by the giant. This helped with their physical development and understanding of the world skills as they used their imagination and gross motor skills to actively play and explore. Following on from this the children enjoyed making their own beanstalk in the garden, using their physical skills to climb their beanstalk.
Well Done Everyone!
Lots of love,
Leigh and the team xxx
