KS1 English: Jack and the Beanstalk - Episode 7

7: And he went higher!

When Jack wakes in the morning he is amazed to see an enormous beanstalk stretching up into the sky. He quickly realises that the beanstalk must have grown from the magic beans - the old man had been telling the truth.

Jack creeps downstairs - taking care not to wake his Ma - and goes into the garden. He begins to climb the beanstalk and goes higher and higher. He is determined to make it to the very top.
