Hi Beech Class. I hope you are all well.

The bean seeds are still available to collect today if you didn’t manage to get them yesterday. Please do email if you have any issues in collecting them and I will try to help. Here is today’s learning:



Recap the story of Jack and the Beanstalk.

Today we are going to write 1 or 2 sentences about what happened in the story. If your child is struggling one sentence is fine.

What do we need to remember when we are writing?

Adults, if possible, don’t tell your child how to spell words. Get them to use their robot arms (they will know what to do). Get them to sound it out – first say the word. Then what sound does the word start with, what sound can you hear in the middle, what sound can you hear at the end of the word?


Use this phonics mat to help identify sounds needed.


You can print the sheet off to complete if you have a printer and want to. If not just show you child the sheet and they can write it in their book.

CHALLENGE – extra ideas to do if you like

You can draw another part of the story and write a sentence to go with your picture if you would like to do more writing.
