KS1 English: Jack and the Beanstalk - Episode 8

8: The castle in the clouds

Jack continues climbing the beanstalk, going higher and higher. He begins to tire...but then hears the voice of the old man giving him encouragement and the strength to continue.

Eventually Jack makes it to the very top of the beanstalk and emerges into a strange, barren landscape. He finds a path and begins to follow it. In the distance he can see a building - a castle looms up before him.
