Number bonds and Number Facts
Number bonds are also often referred to as 'number pairs'. They are simply the pairs of numbers that make up a given number.
1 + 9, 2 + 8, 3 + 7, 4 + 6, 5 + 5
1 + 19, 2 + 18, 3 + 17, 4 + 16, 5 + 15
Children start to learn about number bonds in the Foundation stage, when they might be given a number, such as 5, and then asked to select two groups of objects that will add up to that number.
Children are expected to know number bonds to 10 and number bonds to 20.
Children by now need to be very confident with their number bonds to 20. They need to be able to work out number bonds to 100. They also need to be confident with the corresponding subtraction facts (for example: 20 - 13 = 7).
In Key Stage 2, children move onto being able to work out number bonds to 1000 (e.g. 450 and 550) and number bonds to 1 (e.g. 0.8 and 0.2).
Number facts are basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division calculations that children should learn to recall instantly with no working out (in other words, they need to learn them off by heart).
Number facts are sometimes referred to as number bonds (addition and subtraction) and times tables with related division facts (multiplication and division).
