Your child needs to know the number bonds to 5 , 10 and 100 by the end of Year 1. A number bond is two numbers known as friends to make a specific answer. For example: 7 + 3 = 10 is a number bond to ten because 7 and 3 become friends and make ten when they are together. A good way of finding more is using your fingers.
