KS1 English: Jack and the Beanstalk - Episode 4

4: Five magic beans

A rather nervous Jack declares Daisy for sale for five gold coins. Soon a small group of villagers has gathered around Jack. But when they learn that Daisy gives no milk they laugh at Jack and tell him that no-one will buy Daisy.

Jack and Daisy set off for home once again. On the way back they meet a mysterious man with a twinkle in his eye. He says he will buy Daisy the cow for five magic beans. But can Jack trust him? Jack doesn't know what to do.
