**Here's a simple Reverse Bingo Bonds Game.** **Read more »**

**Maths teaching can be a little predictable at times. The idea here is to offer a different way of visualising addition problems and number bond sequences to 10.** **Read more »**

**This time we offer a Mental and Oral maths activity which focusses on using a specific strategy to give addition a speed boost.**

This teaching activity enables children to gain confidence in reordering the numbers of an addition problem to make that problem easier. The focus is on looking for pairs which create a specific total.

You show an addition problem like this one:

**30 + 10 + 70 + 40 + 90** **Read more »**

**A number of members asked for more 'Make It' resources, especially for higher numbers.**

We created these for addition to 50, tested them out and found that they were a hit. Take a look at them and see what you, and your children think. **Read more »**

**This is an obvious development of our Make 10 and Make 20 activities.**

The downloadable pdf file contains three 10 by 10 grids of numbers. The children have the challenge of finding a line of three numbers that total 15. Each board features 14 or 16 such lines of numbers.

If the sheets are laminated the children can be encouraged to work together with white-board pens to find as many as they can. **Read more »**

**This maths resource is directly related to the Make 20 number grids**.

The pdf download here features a series of 8 by 8 girds of numbers. The numbers have been chosen to offer the children plenty of opportunities to practice number bonds of 10. If the sheets are laminated, the children can work together to find pairs of numbers which total 10. Each board contains 14 or more such pairs. No numbers are used twice, and the pairs only run horizontally and vertically. **Read more »**

**This is a 'Word Search' inspired activity**.

Each card features a 10 by 10 grid of numbers. The children have the challenge of finding a line of four numbers that total 20. Each board features 12 or 14 such strings of numbers.

If the cards are laminated the children can be encouraged to work together with white-board pens to find as many as they can. **Read more »**
