Ladybird Number Bonds

About This Primary Resource

A series of 11 ladybird number bonds. Each ladybird has a different number of black spots on each of it’s wings, with the total number of spots coming to 10. It is a great resource for familiarising pupils with the concept that numerical values (in this case the number 10) can be formed using a variety of different number combinations.

All of the story resources have been put to good use in our library corner, especially during World Book Day. Keep up the good work!

The bright colours and clear images are brilliant for my SEN pupils. For a lot of the children routines are really important, so the visual timetable in particular has been a big hit.

As an NQT this site has been a lifesaver. The resources have saved me loads of time and the forest school activities have been particularly useful. Thanks!
