Sequencing Beanstalk

 


Our beanstalk was made at home so 'grows' up the stairs. Yours could grow across a classroom wall or down a corridor. We have a giant at the top of ours but yours could disappear into a cloud.

How to make a beanstalk

Take a length of green ribbon as long as you want the beanstalk and pin or tack to the wall as the stem of the beanstalk.

Print and cut out the leaves from green paper. Choose from blank leaves that you can either leave blank or write/draw the story on, or our Jack and the Beantalk story sequencing leaves.

Arrange the leaves in order to tell the story and stick them along the ribbon stem.

Jack

To add a 'Jack' to the bottom of the beanstalk, draw around a small child on a large piece of card or a roll of paper (we use wallpaper lining paper). Use colouring pens or paint to decorate your figure and cut out.

Giant

To add a giant at the top of the beanstalk you need large offcuts of card and fabric. Cut out shapes for the giant's legs, body, feet and head. Decorate with pens, buttons, wool. Pin or tack the various parts of your giant in to position.

To add a cloud at the top of your beanstalk, cut out a cloud shape from a large sheet of white card and decorate with cotton wool balls.
