Year 1 - Week 14 - Maths - Number Bonds

Number bonds

Number bonds refer to the pairs of numbers that add up to a specific given number. For instance, examples of number bonds to 10 include combinations like:

6 + 4 and 3 + 7.

By the conclusion of Year 1, children are anticipated to be familiar with all number bonds to 10 and 20. These are fundamental numerical relationships that can be practiced through consistent drills at home.

Consistent practice is key to mastery, so it's advisable to reinforce these bonds repeatedly. Similar to the way times tables become automatic with age, children should ideally know number bonds without the need for calculation. Parents can assist by conducting quick-fire number bond assessments, encouraging children to generate as many combinations as possible within a given timeframe, either by writing them down or verbally expressing them.

To make grasping number bonds to 10 easier, children can use their hands. By extending both hands with a gap between any two fingers, they can visually observe that the number of fingers on one side of the split, added to those on the other side, equals 10. This practical approach can be revisited every few weeks to reinforce understanding.
