LEARNING THEME

This week we will continue our focus on spring and planting by reading the classic fairy tale “Jack and the Beanstalk.”  Through books and a short video, the children will learn about how Jack’s adventure started by trading his cow for some magic beans.  After Jack climbed the gigantic beanstalk he discovered a fierce giant with many great treasures.  But will Jack manage to get away from this ferocious creature?  We will have to read and find out!

Key Vocabulary: beans, cow, magic, beanstalk, harp, goose, egg, treasure, gold, escape

Maths

Reading “Jack and the Beanstalk” gives us the perfect opportunity to practise our counting.  How many beans does Jack have?  Do you have more or fewer beans?  When we make our own beanstalks we will talk about who has the most leaves, and who has the least.  The children will be encouraged to count many interesting things they find i the classroom this week.  There will be groups of seeds, black beans, growing plants, and even some sparkly eggs from the Golden Goose!  We look forward to an exciting week counting and comparing together.

Key Vocabulary:  count, more, fewer, how many, bigger, smaller, biggest, smallest

Op de kinderboerderij is iedereen blij.  Ze hebben er een geitje bij!   Mik gaat kijken en we gaan langs alle boerderijdieren.  We hinniken als paarden, kakelen mee met de kip en bekijken alle jonge dieren op de kinderboerderij.
