Maths

Please help your child to learn these key number facts. 

We are looking for instant recall of these number facts.

Set 1 - Number bonds to 10

1 + 9 and 9 + 1=

2 + 8 and 8 + 2=

3 + 7 and 7 + 3=

4 + 6 and 6 + 4=

5 + 5=

Now we know our numbers bonds to 10 we also know our number bonds to 100!

 

10 + 90 and 90 + 10=

20 + 80 and 80 + 20=

30 + 70 and 70 + 30=

40 + 60 and 60 + 40=

50 + 50=

 

Set 2 - Addition number facts

4 + 2= 6                 4 + 3= 7

5 + 2= 7                 5 + 3= 8

6 + 2= 8                 6 + 3= 9

7 + 2= 9

9 + 2= 11

 

Now we have quick recall of our addition facts we can also add multiples of 10.

 

40 + 20= 60           40 + 30= 70

50 + 20= 70           50 + 30= 80

60 + 20= 80           60 + 30= 90

70 + 20= 90

90 + 20= 110

 

Set 3 - Number Doubles

6 + 6 = 12

7 + 7 = 14

8 + 8 = 16

9 + 9 = 18

 

Now we know our number doubles we can double our multiples of 10.

60 + 60 = 120

70 + 70 = 140

80 + 80 = 160

90 + 90 = 180
