KS1 English: Jack and the Beanstalk - Episode 10

10: The bag of silver coins

The giant is reassured by his wife that there is no boy present and that he is just imagining things. The giant sits down to an enormous meal and then calls for his money. He counts out 100 silver coins and then falls asleep.

Jack comes out of his hiding place and the giant's wife explains that the money is stolen and that she would gladly return it to the rightful owners...if only she knew who they were. Jack tells her he knows many hungry villagers who need money for food.

So Jack takes the bag of silver coins and makes his way back down the beanstalk.
