# Number Bonds Please feel free to download the below number bonds sheets and practice with your children at home. All children start on the number bonds to 5 sheet.

How do they work?

In each box is a small number in the left corner (e.g. 1). Children have to add onto this number to reach the specific bond. So for example, if your child is working on the number bonds to 5 sheet and there was a little 1 in the left corner of the box, they would then write 4 in that box because 1 + 4 = 5. Please see a completed number bonds sheet below. The times-tables sheets work in a similar way but this time the children multiply the little number in the box by the times-table they are working on. For example, if your child was working on the x2 sheet and there was a little 3 in the box, they would write 6 in that box because 2 x 3 = 6.

The division sheets work in a similar way but this time the children divide the number in the box by the divisor they are working on. For example, if your child was working on the dividing by 5 sheet and there was a little 15 in the box, they would write a 3 in that box because 15 divided by 5 = 3.
