Will it be a magic bean?

Which bean will grow? In Newgate this week we have been looking at the traditional story of Jack and the Beanstalk. Our magic story world box sent us three sets of beans, one bag of jelly beans, one bag of broad beans and one can of baked beans. The children predicted which bean would grow. Would they all?

In our provision area we have planted each bean, we have three pots outside and three pots inside to see if being warmer will help. The investigation has been led by the children. Every few days the children are logging any changes in a bean plant diary. We look forward to this process unfolding.

Our week has concluded with a focus on Father’s Day. We have learnt about how Father’s Day is celebrated around the world, as well as creating some wonderful craft.

Many thanks for your continued support,

The Newgate Team
