I can write a letter of apology as a character from a story.


Today you need to stay in role as Jack or the Giant and write a letter to the other to apologise for your behaviour. Have a look at the example letter to see how letters are presented. Remember to include why you behaved the way you did using your ideas from yesterday. Maybe you could think of a way to make it up to the other character?


I can express my views on a story I've listened to.


Rewatch the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and use today's Powerpoint to help you think about whether or not Jack did the right thing. Take a look at the activity on the sheet and have a go at imagining you are Jack and then the Giant. 


Extra challenge: Dress up as your chosen character and call video call a friend in role. Or make a video trying to convince everyone that you were in the right!


I can use conjunctions including and and but in my writing.


Use the powerpoint to remind yourself of what conjunctions are. Then have a go at completing the activities on the sheet and using the conjunctions in your own writing about Jack and the Beanstalk.


I can write command sentences.


Read through the Powerpoint and watch the video about command sentences. Why not play a game of Simon Says with someone at home to practice giving commands? Re-watch the Jack and the Beanstalk video and spot the commands before having a go at writing your own.

I can learn and recall a traditional tale.


This week you will be exploring Jack and the Beanstalk. Today your job is to learn the story! There are loads of different versions out there; Mr Brewer has picked two for you to read and watch before completing your task. My favourite is Roald Dahl's revolting rhyme - I've read it so many times I know most of if off by heart. See if you can retell your favourite version by heart too!
