Football number bonds worksheet free download







When I asked T what sort of activities he'd like to do afterschool, he asked for number bonds!  He loves maths and if number bonds are what my little man wanted, then that's what I decided to make!


T loves the No problem maths method from Singapore Maths and this method really does seem to work for him.  See here for more information on number bonds.


Because the world cup is coming up and because we are doing lots of football related activities and games at the moment I decided to make this number bond worksheet football themed.


I have left the numbers blank on this worksheet so that it can be customised specifically for the level of your child.  The first one I did for T was for 20 but of course he told me it was too easy and it needed to be a higher number!  He is so funny! 


To aide this activity you could use a number line or small parts, number blocks or lego.


You can download the worksheet here.

Geomag review and giveaway!



With T loving all things STEM and having a fascination with magnets, I thought Geomag kits would be perfect for our home learning and play.

The reality though was a little different! 





We were sent 2 kits to review, the Geomag panels and Geomag mechanics. T was keen to make a start straight away and actually did really well building his own structures however, despite the kits being for ages 5+ he really struggled to follow the complicated instructions.



At first this didn’t phase him at all, he just got on with making his own inventions but he soon become a bit bored and wanted to be able to make something from the book.  We switched from the panels kit to the mechanics kit and he managed to follow the instructions.



Between us we managed to complete the kit and T was pretty chuffed.  I on the other hand, was glad to see the end of it, this toy really did test my patience!

Despite the difficulties we had I do think Geomags are a great toy, I just don’t think that they are for us really at the moment, we’re both really clumsy and kept knocking them down and the instructions are far too complicated for a 5 year old in my opinion. 

We’ll certainly be giving these kits another try but will probably wait a couple of years!



Geomag are sold in The Entertainer and Smyths. 

Having said this, we are giving away a Geomag panels kit worth £90!

Follow the instructions in the rafflecopter below, giveaway ends 2359 on 10 April 2018.

Funny bunny board game review



Oh this game is so much fun and so perfect for easter! Funny bunny is also such a fantastic game for all the family.

It’s a little like frustration, with the intention to get your 4 little rabbits to the top of the carrot, but wait, there’s a twist, each player takes a card and twists the carrot at the top according to the card instructions which means that the whole game could change, rabbit holes can change places and your rabbit can fall down into the burrow, the gate can block the way or your rabbit could get knocked off by a tree stump!

Gazillion bubble pong game review


I do love an outdoor game, you can picture the scene, dad cooking up the BBQ, mum with a nice glass of wine sitting in the sun and the kids giggling and squealing playing a game! Some of my favourite times have been exactly this scene when K and H were smaller. 

Schleich dinosaur figure review



If you enjoyed our measuring post at the beginning of the month, you are sure to like this one too. These schleich dinosaurs would be fantastic to use in that activity! 

Paddington puzzle from Ravensburger



Have you seen the Paddington 2 movie yet? It’s absolutely fantastic, we all loved it, I think I probably liked it just as much as T did!

We were sent this fab Ravensburger Paddington 60 piece puzzle to review so after watching the film and eating marmalade sandwiches T and The Hubs decided to doo the puzzle. 

If you do one thing this Mother’s Day...



Happy Mother’s Day!

And if you’re reading this and your not a mother or female. Happy 11th March, this post still applies to you! 💜

One thing I’ve realised over the past 6 months is just how important it is to take 30 minutes EACH DAY to yourself, this might be as simple as going to bed early to watch Netflix or listen to your favourite music with a glass of wine, curl up with a cup of tea and a book or do a yoga class, meditate or simply sit in the dark relaxing! Whatever it is that helps with your wellbeing do it and make sure you do something every day!
