When Jack swaps his cow for a bag of magic beans, he could never have imagined the things that were to happen next. Download the whole story to your Kindle here.

The children in P2P at Sanderwsons Wynd School heard from the mysterious Keeper of the Stories that the tale of Jack and the Beanstalk was missing from Fairyland and that he needed help to replace the story of Jack that had gone missing from the Land of Fairy Tales.

During their term-long Storyline project the children learned:

about creating the characters of Jack and the Beanstalk  with ‘wow’ words; to use more connecting words in a story; how to write a story and you have to put in full stops at the end of the sentence and capital letters at the beginning of a sentence; that we can make model castles out of cardboard; about plants at the Botanic Gardens; that beans grow with soil, water and light; how to measure beans and make a bean graph; how trees grow at the Botanic Gardens; how to make cakes with real vanilla beans and what a vanilla plant looks like and that rainsticks are made from cacti; and how to build a castle and Jack’s cottage.

And last but by no means least, how to make an ebook and it’s for sale on Amazon. 

The children would like to send the profits from this book to a children’s charity because, now they’ve got to know Jack, they’d like to help poor people like him.
Go along to the class blog to see what they’ve been up to.

Many congratulations for this fantastic piece of work to the children of 2P2, Ms Pearce and Mr Bird (no mean crime writer himself) for all their hard work.
