Bag of Beans is an innovative numeracy and storytelling programme for years 1 and 2 based on Jack and the Beanstalk. It provides opportunities for practising and developing numeracy skills within a stimulating piece of theatre-in-education.

Pupils meet journeying storytellers who have discovered a document which intrigues and baffles them.  The book seems to tell a version of the well known story of Jack and the Beanstalk, however it is incomplete and the storytellers need help to unlock its riddles, puzzles and the secrets within its pages.

We hope that you find the following resources helpful in terms of further exploring the learning opportunities presented by the programme.
