Number Bonds to Ten Song For KS1

Number Bonds to Ten Song For KS1

Here is a link to a song that I wrote and performed about number bonds to ten. In line with the new mastery maths , the accompanying video shows, using Numicon, the various ways of making ten and their equivalence. The song also uses rhyming couplets to facilitate the children remembering the number bond pairs. Lyrics are included in the video for a singalong! The song is also available on iTunes to buy and to stream on Spotify, Amazon etc, if you cant get to a computer for YouTube.
