Woodlands' Whizz Kids

Class: Year 1/2 Year: 2016 - 2017

At the Woodlands' Whizz Kids after school club, one of the stories we have looked at is "Jack and the Beanstalk." 

We carried out a special pop quiz as part of our reading comprehension.  Children were so keen to buzz in and give their answers to earn points towards treats.  In addition, children were encouraged to identify digraphs and trigraphs in words throughout the story as part of our sneaky phonics plug!  Throughout our stand alone phonics workshop the children were led by staff to participate in practising our reading skills.  

Furthermore we used the puppets of the characters from the story and our theatre in order to retell the story to an audience with great gusto!  

Finally we planted a special magic bean and placed a cloud in the soil in the hope that our beanstalk would grow when looked after with care and love...Here we have been sent a picture by Christopher Downey (Year 2) of his beanstalk that has grown beyond the clouds!  I think he is getting ready to climb it now.  Beware of any giants Christopher!
