This week in Reception, we have been learning all about growing beanstalks and how the process of growing a plant works. We talked about the plants life cycle going from planting a seed all the way to a beanstalk with peapods. The children have enjoyed planting their own beans in the outdoor area and are making sure they care for them appropriately each day. We have discussed the importance of making sure our seeds have enough sunlight and water so that they can grow. Our focused stories to share in class have been ‘Jasper’s Beanstalk’ and ‘The Tiny Seed’. As part of our guided reading session, the children have been learning the traditional tale ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and have sequenced the story recalling the main points.
