  • NUMBER - Visual Number Bonds

    NUMBER - Visual Number Bonds PACK +

    Practise number bonds to 10, 15 and 20 through fun, game-style activities - together with follow-up sheets for consolidation. A sound knowledge of number bonds provides a firm grounding for many mental calculations. These interactives show the bonds in a pictorial style using blocks - giving pupils a visual reference while learning the concept. These simple games ask pupils to find the missing number from a pair, to total either 10, 15 or 20. The lead resource is a basic matching exercise to pair bonds to 10, by fitting shapes together to make complete blocks. Additionally, we've included printable sheets to practise making number pairs, plus a number bonds game for pupils to play at home. Also try our Alien Number Bond Pack, which focuses on adding to 5, 10 or 20.
