Jack and the Beanstalk - Below is a version of the story, feel free to read and watch a number of versions and compare the way the story is told in each.

Think about and describe each of the characters. What do they look like? Are they big / small / old / young? What kind of personality do they have? Are they kind / mean / funny?

Use this planning sheet to sequence the story and write a short sentence for different stages of the story. This doesn't need to be a whole story yet but is a way to remember and describe some of the main events.

Write your version of the story. You can use these pictures and prompts so you include as much detail as possible. You could change some parts if you like, for example have a different character instead of Jack, or a different kind of monster at the top of the beanstalk.

Make some stick puppets and use them to tell your version of the story. Will it be called 'Jack and the Beanstalk' or will you have a new title?
