Did Jack look after his beans? What did he do to make them grow so tall? Tall enough to reach a giant’s castle!
Where do beans/seeds come from? Where can we find them and how do they travel?
Jack’s story does not share this with its readers, therefore it is up to Year 2 to explore and discover the life of a plant from its beginning.
Healthy and Unhealthy
The children drew around a year 6 boy who we named the giant. Then they drew around a small child who would be Jack.
The giant was filled with pictures of unhealthy food and Jack was filled with healthy food.
THE EATWELL GUIDE
Year 2, have being exploring how to be healthy. They have explored foods which have been farmed,caught and grown. We have looked at food that have changed from farm to fork. We have studied the Eatwell guide and how we stay healthy.
Year 2 received a letter from Jack's mother asking for our help. Jack isn't a healthy eater and mum wants him to so the children designed a healthy plate for Jack to eat and wrote a letter in response to Jacks mother. They gave her good advice and gave examples of a balanced meal.
A picnic for Jack and the Giant.
Year 2 are experts about being healthy and what to eat and do. Moreover, Jacks mum wrote another letter asking for advice from the children.
Jack's mum ask the children to design a picnic for Jack to take with him and the giant. We had a discussion about what was healthy to take to a picnic. The children did a tally chart and discovered the most popular food to take on a picnic.
Some of the picnic's were yummy and Mr Berry also commented that he would like to eat some of the picnic food too.
