Over the next few weeks during maths lessons, we will be investigating 'Number Bonds.' This can also be called number pairs.
Children will be asked to split a number into two parts, in as many different ways as they can. The images below give you some ideas as to how this might look. They will then apply this understanding to help them solve problems involving these numbers.
Encourage your child to use these number bonds in their everyday maths experiences to help them understand how useful knowing and memorising them can be.
The children have been sent home a login for a website called Numbots. The login details for this should be in the front of their reading diary.
Please encourage them to use this website as it is a fun, educational way to help them with their mathematical learning.
In class we will monitor who has used this website. The more activities the children complete on the website, the more 'coins' they can win as a reward. Children have the chance to win First, Second and Third place for how often many coins they have earned that week.
I look forward to seeing your child's name on the Hall of Fame, but more importantly the children enjoying maths challenges!
