After half term, our focus will be on ‘Our Local Area’.


We will be travelling to Exmouth town centre, Lympstone and Exeter to compare villages, towns and cities.


During half term you might go out for walks around your local area and note any geographical features that you might see – hill, river, coast, forest, beach, cliff, sea, valley.

- read and share your child’s reading book and other books that you may have at home.


- quickly recall number bonds to 10:


1+9 =10, 2+8 =10, 3+7=10, 4+6= 10, 5+5=10 etc
