Today we are going to start looking at a new traditional tale: Jack and the Beanstalk! Most of you will have heard this story before. Mrs Miller has been teaching you lots of Jack and the Beanstalk songs!

We know that traditional tales are old stories that were first written a long, long time ago. Many of them have been retold many times.  Jack and the Beanstalk has been retold many times. Here are some of the different versions of the story that we have in school:

Click below to listen to me read you the Usborne Books version of the story:

Now click on the Power Point to read a different version of the story. What is the same and what is different?

Today I would like you to retell the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, using some pictures to help you.

Click on the pictures, print them out, cut up the pictures and then put them in order.

Verbally retell the story, thinking carefully about what is happening in each picture.

Maths

Year 1:

We are carrying on with division as grouping today. Have a look at my PowerPoint which gives a few more examples of grouping then try the worksheet.

Year 2:

Today I would like you to have a go at solving some problems to do with division as grouping. Watch me have a go in my video then try the below sheet. Good luck!

## Phonics

### Year 1:

Click on the Power Point and practice the alternative pronunciations for graphemes again:

Today we are going to look again at the grapheme 'ow'. This grapheme is pronounced differently in different words. It can make an 'ow' sound in the word 'cow' but it can also make an 'oa' sound like in the word 'snow'.  Play the Read and Roll game below. Read each word carefully. If it doesn't make sense, change the pronunciation of the 'ow' grapheme and try again!

### Year 2:

Yesterday we learnt about question sentences. Today we are learning about another type of sentence: commands.

Science

Last week you had a go at making the three little pigs houses, exploring different materials and their properties. What did we find out?

This week we are building on from this and we are going to make three different houses for the three little pigs using any of the following materials (or similar, depending on what you have at home): paper, card, foil, plastic, playdough. Once you have made your three houses I would like you to make a prediction about which material is the strongest.

Then I would like you to find something you can drop onto your houses to test their strength. You need to decide how you are going to drop the object: from what height etc. Remember it needs to be a fair test. This means that you need to do exactly the same thing for each house. So if you drop a ball, for example, from 10 cm onto one of your houses, you need to do the same for the other two houses otherwise it won’t be fair. Also remember to do your investigation safely. So be sensible with what you decide to use to test the strength and drop it carefully. I don’t want any broken toes!

I have provided you with a sheet where you can write up your investigation. When you write about what you found out let me know if your prediction was right. Please take photos too! Enjoy being Scientists for the afternoon!
