Maths in Year 3

In Year 3, we place a big focus on developing efficiency in mathematical skills. As with English, we continue to build on the work from Infants to ensure children become confident mathematicians.

Year 3 end of year Maths expectations:

 Number and Place Value Count from 0 in multiples of 100 – e.g. 100, 200, 300, 400… Count from 0 in multiples of 4, 8 and 50 – e.g. 4, 8, 12… Recognise the place value of each digit in a three-digit number (hundreds, tens, ones)  - e.g. 231 is 2 hundreds, 3 tens and 1 one. Read and write numbers up to 1000 in numerals and in words  - e.g. 123 = one hundred and twenty threee Identify, represent and estimate numbers to 1000 using different representations and partitioning in different ways  - e.g. draw diagrams, number sentences etc. Compare and order numbers up to 1000  - e.g. 231 < 987, 231 is smaller than 987 Solve number problems and practical problems with number and place value from the Year 3 curriculum Round whole numbers up to 100 to the nearest 10  - e.g. 29 to the nearest 10 is 30.

 Addition, Subtractions, Multiplication and Division (Calculations) Add 1s, 10s and 100s to a 3 digit numbers Subtract 1s, 10s and 100s from a 3 digit number Solve problems including missing number problems, using place value and more complex addition and subtraction Solve calculation problems involving multiplication and division, including missing number problems, simple positive integer scaling and simple correspondence problems in which n objects are connected to m objects Know my tables for 3, 4 and 8 and their division facts Add numbers with up to 3 digits using a written method (column method) Subtract numbers with up to 3 digits using a written method (column method) Multiply two-digit numbers by one-digit numbers, using written methods (column method) Estimate the answer to a calculation and use inverse operations to check answers

 Fractions Find a fraction of an amount such as 1/6 of 24 Find a fraction of an amount such as 4/6 of 24 Count up and down in 10ths Understand that 10ths come from dividing an object by 10 Recognise and draw equivalent fractions Compare and order fractions by their size Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator within one whole for example 5/7 + 1/7 = 6/7 Solve problems that involve fractions

 Measurement Know the number of seconds in a minute and the number of days in each month, year and leap year Record measurements using mixed units, e.g.1 kg 200 g Estimate and read time with increasing accuracy to the nearest minute Record and compare time in terms of seconds, minutes and hours Use vocabulary such as o’clock, a.m./p.m., morning, afternoon, noon and midnight Tell and write the time from an analogue clock, including using Roman numerals from I to XII, and 12-hour and 24-hour clocks Measure the perimeter of simple 2-D shapes Compare durations of events for example to calculate the time taken by particular events or tasks Add and subtract amounts of money to give change, recording £ and p separately Measure, compare, add and subtract: lengths (m/cm/mm); mass (kg/g); volume/capacity (l/ml)

 Geometry (Shape, Space and Direction) Draw 2-D shapes with straight sides measured in cm Make 3-D shapes using modelling materials Identify horizontal and vertical lines and pairs of perpendicular and parallel lines Describe 2-D shapes using accurate language, including lengths of lines and angles greater or less than a right angle Recognise 3-D shapes in different orientations and describe them Identify right angles, recognise that two right angles make a half-turn, three make three quarters of a turn and four a complete turn Recognise angles as a property of shape or a description of a turn Mark a given square on a grid, e.g. B3

 Statistics (Data Handling) Interpret bar charts, pictograms and tables Present data in bar charts, pictograms and tables Solve problems with one or two steps using scaled bar charts, pictograms and tables opens in new window
