Number bonds, they may not be the nation’s favourite bond, but they’re definitely a close second.

“Firsht plache”

So we’ve rounded up some of the best video guides on the web to give you a few simple ideas how to teach your Key Stage 1 pupils. There are no gadgets, car chases or evil lairs, but unlike Bond films you might actually learn something. So here we go:

This simple guide might help you focus on how you present number bonds to your class, and there’s also a video for subtracting with number bonds and teaching them in the Singapore style.

2. Singapore Maths

Talking of which, here’s Mr Almeida with an animated guide on doing things the Singapore way.

3. Maths at Home
