On The Way Home

On the Way Home by Jill Murphy

This week we have been reading the story ‘On the Way Home’ that is all about a little girl called Claire who is walking home to tell her mum about how she hurt her knee. On the way home, she meets her friends and tells them how the fall happened. But just how did it happen? Was she dropped by a wolf, a slithering snake or an enormous dragon? This story has really allowed our imaginations to run wild!

The weather is starting to get better and we have enjoyed making the most of our discovery garden. Outside we have used the story to enact different scenarios, whether this is pretending an alien spaceship or a witch on a broomstick meets us on our way home. What will happen on your way home today?  

Please have a look at the Home Learning that has been attached to find some fun activities that link to each area of your child’s learning. We would love to hear from you about your child’s home learning. Please could you email these to us at: fshomelearning@exwickheights.devon.sch.uk

Happy half term everyone!

A few notes:

  • We would love to receive any recyclable material for our junk modelling station. These can include cardboard boxes, cleaned out yoghurt pots or plastic containers. Please can we ask that anything that contained nuts does not come in due to allergies, thank you.
