Remember the rhyme to practice your number bonds:

in your learning journal book.

learn your bonds to have good luck!




Number bonds are basically numbers that when added together make ten.

The number bond below shows 2 + 8 = 10



As a class we say - one part is two, one part is eight and the whole is ten!


Number bonds can come in any number of 'parts' and the one below shows

2 + 5 + 3 = 10


 As a class we say - one part is two, one part is five, one part is three and the whole is ten!


  • Every day the children will practice their number bonds using the challenge.
  • They have two minutes to complete as many questions as they can.
  • If they complete the challenge without any mistakes they will earn a star sticker.
  • Stickers can be bronze, silver or gold depending upon the difficulty of the challenge.
  • When they achieve five stickers of one colour they will receive a certificate!
