Dolphin know some number bonds!

Dolphins have been working hard on their number bonds of 10. There are 6 very important bonds that we need to know: 5 and 5, 6 and 4, 7 and 3, 8 and 2, 9 and 1, 10 and 0. Once we know these bonds – we can answer hundreds of addition and subtraction sums using just these facts! Keep practising!

Here are some games we’ve enjoyed playing. – see if you can fire the balls to make a bond of ten. – as a class, our top score for bonds of ten was 28! Can you beat this at home? Try bonds of 100 and bonds of 20 too. – choose a frame to practice bonds of 10, 100 or 20. – choose whether to play bonds of 10, 20 or 100 (multiples of ten).
