Resource Overview

Meet Farmer Jack, and his lovely cow Crumble! Jack’s got a fascinating story to tell, all about his great-great-great-great grandfather, and his adventures with some magic beans… 


As well as being a great standalone resource, the Farmer Jack films can be used to inspire different areas of learning. After watching this video, why not explore how beans grow, with our exciting instruction writing lesson? Pupils can then apply their knowledge with this resource from SAPS, which introduces the concepts of plant biology through a fun, snakes-and-ladders style game.
