Activity one: Acting out the story
As your first activity today we want you to all become little drama students today! Read the story to your children or share the video and encourage them to act out each part of the story!
Start with all of the children looking very sad because they have no food. Walk to the shop pulling a pretend cow (This is really hard because the cow doesn’t want to go) Pretend to be the man with the magical beans offering Jack them then pretend to be Jack jumping up and down happily because he has magic beans and running home to tell his Mum. Encourage the children to be Mum shouting at Jack and throwing the beans out of the window. Then go to ‘bed’ Wake up in the morning and act really shocked that a beanstalk has grown. Pretend to climb the beanstalk then tip toe into the castle. Be a giant stomping and shouting fee fi fo fum. Then be Jack tip-toeing to steal the goose that laid the golden egg and running away from the giant down the beanstalk. Finally pretend to chop the beanstalk down and fall down just like the giant

The three rules are:
