Throughout Year 1 look at numbers bonds to 10 and 20 so they can support the children when they deal with larger numbers as they grow. For example if a child is sure that 3 + 7 = 10 just as 7 + 3 = 10 then they will be equally sure that 33 + 17 = 50. We can use number bonds a lot of different ways. If 7 + 3 = 10 then 10 - 3 = 7 just as 10 - 7 = 3. There are so many fun activities surrounding number bonds online in ICT games (link below) and YouTube.

Multiplication and Division
In Year 1 we count in 2s, 5s and 10s. We are also beginning to divide in 2s 5s and 10s. If you create multiplications or divisions for your children please go over what the symbol means before they start.
