KS1 English: Jack and the Beanstalk - Part 14

14: We're rich!

Jack comes out of his hiding place and goes to take the harp. But the harp begins to speak - calling out to the giant and waking him. Jack dashes for the door pursued by the giant...who slips on a bowl of jelly spilled by his wife.

Jack races down the beanstalk chased by the giant. His Ma is waiting at the bottom with an axe and Jack begins to chop at the stalk. The beanstalk comes crashing to the ground and the giant with it. He grumbles and goes off in search of a way home again.

The villagers celebrate. The golden hen has been found and returned to the village...and, even better, Daisy the cow is home again too!
