The children need to be very speedy in their recall of number bonds. In year 1 we begin by learning all of the number bonds to 10 - there are lots!! It is important that the children know these bonds by heart and quickly use them in their maths.
With Rocket maths, the children will be tested to see how many bonds they can remember in 3 minutes. If they get all of them correct and we feel they are confident in their knowledge, they will then move to the next stage. It is so important to help your child to learn these number bonds, please spend a bit of time each week. Then their number knowledge will 'Rocket, out of this world!'
