Is there anything you disliked about the story? If so, what?
Is there anything that puzzles you about the story?
Have you noticed any connections to other stories?

Task: Story map the events in Jim and the Beanstalk

What is a story map?
It is a journey through a story from the beginning to the end using pictures and labels for key parts of the story. Story maps allow you to think about the structure of the story. They give plenty of opportunities for discussion and ensure that we can re-tell their story orally.

Today we are going to be drawing lines of symmetry.



Your task today is to make detailed observational drawings of scented flowers, look closely at colours, shapes and patterns. You may have some flowers in your garden or within your home. You could also visit your local park or garden to see some flowers. Remember to ask your adult before picking any flowers. Choose from a range of drawing materials, such as chalks, felt pens, wax and pencil crayons and pastels, to record your drawing. Try smelly pens to add a sensory dimension to your artwork.
