Year 1 Number Bonds

Date: 15th Nov 2023 @ 7:21am

Today we combined our knowledge of the part-whole model and addition facts to explore number bonds within 10. We started with the whole number and broke numbers into parts; exploring how many different ways a number can be partitioned. We explored this using double sided counters, tens frames and dot patterns. We worked through different examples together, noticing that we see numbers made from dot patterns differently, exploring these patterns and discussing these different ways of thinking. We continued to look at number sentences written with the symbols in different places and talked about the commutative nature of the calculations.
