£9.50  (inc VAT)

KS: R & KS1, R & KS1 / LKS2

Year Group: Year 2

Author(s): Raymond Briggs

Main Outcomes:

Narrative (Sequels and Retellings), Dialogue, Informal Letters

Overview and Outcomes:

This is a three-week planning sequence for Jim and the Beanstalk by Raymond Briggs. To begin with, ensure children know ‘original’ version of story – read it some weeks before. Ensure they have access to a number of Fairytales and ‘twisted tales’ in the book area/class library. Introduce a Fairytale sequel, using ‘Jim and the Beanstalk’ by Raymond Briggs. Children discover a beanstalk and footprint in the classroom and use this to engage with and learn the story and retell it to one another. Children then use their knowledge of the sequel to initially innovate and then create their own sequel to another well-known fairytale, e.g. Auburn Hair and the Three Bears.

Synopsis of Text:

A re-telling of the classic children's story by the author and illustrator of the best-selling Snowman. Jim finds a beanstalk growing outside his window one morning, and follows his famous predecessor up to the top.
