Jasper's Beanstalk

Jasper's Beanstalk

A story about a cat called Jasper who finds a bean one morning, but despite all the attention he lavishes on it all week, the bean refuses to grow, but a long time afterwards, Jasper receives a happy surprise. Illustrated in colour by Mick Inkpen.

We sequenced the story using the days of the week to help us. We then retold the story.


Days of the week are ‘When?’ Words.


Here is an example of the colourful semantics sentence structure we used to retell the story…

When? Who? What doing? What?’

On Monday, Jasper found a bean.
