Year 3 Mathematics

Autumn

Number: Place Value

  • Identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations.
  • Find 10 or 100 more or less than a given number
  • Recognise the place value of each digit in a three-digit number (hundreds, tens, ones).
  • Compare and order numbers up to 1000
  • Read and write numbers up to 1000 in numerals and in words.
  • Solve number problems and practical problems involving these ideas.
  • Count from 0 in multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100

Number: addition and subtraction

  • Add and subtract numbers mentally, including: a three-digit number and ones; a three-digit number and tens; a three digit number and hundreds.
  • Add and subtract numbers with up to three digits, using formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction.
  • Estimate the answer to a calculation and use inverse operations to check answers.
  • Solve problems, including missing number problems, using number facts, place value, and more complex addition and subtraction.

Multiplication and division

  • Count from 0 in multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100
  • Recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables.
  • Write and calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division using the multiplication tables they know, including for two-digit numbers times one-digit numbers, using mental and progressing to formal written methods.
  • Solve problems, including missing number problems, involving multiplication and division, including positive integer scaling problems and correspondence problems in which n objects are connected to m objectives.

Measurement: money

  • Add and subtract amounts of money to give change, using both Β£ and p in practical contexts.

Statistics

  • Interpret and present data using bar charts, pictograms and tables.
  • Solve one-step and two-step questions [for example, β€˜How many more?’ and β€˜How many fewer?’] using information presented in scaled bar charts and pictograms and tables.

Length and perimeter

  • Measure, compare, add and subtract: lengths (m/cm/mm); mass (kg/g); volume/capacity (l/ml).
  • Measure the perimeter of simple 2D shapes.

Number: fractions

  • Count up and down in tenths;recognise that tenths arise from dividing an object into 10 equal parts and in dividing one-digit numbers or quantities by 10
  • Recognise and use fractions as numbers: unit fractions and non-unit fractions with small denominators.
  • Recognise, find and write fractions of a discrete set of objects: unit fractions and non-unit fractions with small denominators.
  • Solve problems that involve all of the above.

Summer

Number: fractions

  • Count up and down in tenths; recognise that tenths arise from dividing an object into 10 equal parts and in dividing one-digit numbers or quantities by 10
  • Recognise and use fractions as numbers: unit fractions and non-unit fractions with small denominators.
  • Recognise, find and write fractions of a discrete set of objects: unit fractions and non-unit fractions with small denominators.
  • Solve problems that involve all of the above.

Measurement: time

  • Tell and write the time from ananalogue clock, including using Roman numerals from I to XII and 12-hour and 24-hour clocks.
  • 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.
  • Know the number of seconds in a minute and the number of days in each month, year and leap year.
  • Compare durations of events [for example to calculate the time taken by particular events or tasks].

Geometry: properties of shape

  • Recognise angles as a property of shape or a description of a turn.
  • Identify right angles, recognise that two right angles make a half-turn, three make three quarters of a turn and four a complete turn; identify whether angles are greater than or less than a right angle.
  • Identify horizontal and vertical lines and pairs of perpendicular and parallel lines.
  • Draw 2-D shapes and make 3-D shapes using modelling materials.
  • Recognise 3-D shapes in different orientations and describe them.

Measurement: mass and capacity

  • Measure, compare, add and subtract: lengths (m/cm/mm); mass (kg/g); volume/capacity (l/ml)
