Five-Wise Number Frames

A unique ten frames resource, stressing the structure of 1-10 as a ‘five and a bit’ image.

  • Pupils can use these durable wooden frames to develop their understanding of how numbers relate to 5. For example, seven is two more than five.

  • Children have two hands, with each hand having 5 fingers. They are used to a 5 and a bit image. The frames are an embodiment of their bodies! These frames are a new way to help pupils on the journey to an abstract notion of numbers to 10, and can move on to explore pair-wise ten frames.

  • Research suggests that the ability to think about numbers as compositions of other numbers, is a vital achievement in the early years of school. Our Five-Wise Number Frames add another representation of number for children to investigate. Hardwearing, wooden and environmentally friendly, these frames help develop children’s fluidity and flexibility with numbers. They are perfect for spotting relationships & predicting patterns between numbers and visualising numbers in different contexts, all of which contribute to good number sense.


  • Age Range: 18-24 months to 3-4 years
