Jack and the Beanstalk: Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum
Over the past week, Undy Nursery had been working on a ‘Jack and the beanstalk’ theme.
They read the story, planted beans, watch a show on TV. Georgia is already familiar with the story from an activity sticker book she got about a year or two ago.
This morning, she sang the Fee-fi-fo-fum song and completely had me in stitches. Why, you’d wonder would this song –
I smell the blood of an Englishman
Be he alive or be he dead
I’ll have his bones to grind my bread
be so funny?
only because – we live in Wales and Undy Nursery School is a ‘Welsh’ School.
I did think they were taking the Welsh-English discontent to extreme until I found out that the words were the original!
