Our learning intention today is to make number bonds to 10.
ELG 11: Mathematics: Numbers
count reliably with numbers from 1 to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more
or one less than a given number using quantities and objects, add and subtract 2 single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer.
This Challenge activity requires children to find a missing number in the context of bonds to 10. Children will need to use the knowledge they have built up, that a full ten frame always totals 10, and begin to be able to use number bonds to 10 flexibly. If children need a starting point, remind them of the two-step method they have been using with counters and a ten frame.
• What can you see in the picture?
• What can you use to represent the bottles? [Counters and cubes will work for this.]
• Refer children to what Flo is saying. Do you think a ten frame can help you? How?
• Now you can see how many bottles you have, how many more do you need to make 10? How many empty spaces are there in the ten frame?
Children roll a dice to see how many counters they can put in the ten frame and then work out how many more they need to fill the ten frame. How many different pairs of numbers can they find to make 10? Allow children to use 10 counters for support where necessary.
