Autumn Term

In the autumn term Year 3 children will:

  • Count from 0 in multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100

  • 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

  • Identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations

  • Read and write numbers o to 1000 in numerals and in words

  • Solve number problems and practical problems involving these ideas

  • Add an subtract numbers mentally, including a three-digit number and ones, and tens, 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

  • Recall and reuse multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables

  • Write and calculate mathematical statements for multiplication using known tables, including for two-digit numbers times one-digit numbers, using mental and progressing to formal written methods

  • Write and calculate mathematical statements for division using know multiplication tables, 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' objects

  • measure, compare, add and subtract lengths (m/ cm/ mm)

Spring Term

In the spring term Year 3 children will:

  • Measure mass (kg/g)

  • Compare mass (kg/g)

  • Add and subtract (kg/g)

  • Measure volume/ capacity (l/ml)

  • Compare volume/capacity (l/ml)

  • Add and subtract volume/ capacity (l/lml)

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

  • Interpret and present data using bar charts, pictograms and tables

  • Solve one-step and two-step questions e.g. 'how many more?' and 'How many fewer?" using information presented in scaled bar charts, pictograms and tables

  • Count up and down in tenths

  • Recognise that tenths arise from dividing an object in 10 equal parts and in dividing one-digit numbers or quantities by 10

  • Recognise and show, using diagrams, equivalent fractions with small denominators

  • Compare and order unit fractions with the same denominators

Summer Term

In the summer term Year 3 children will:

  • Recognise, find and write fractions of discrete set of objects - unit fractions/ non-unit fractions with small denominators

  • Add and subtract fractions with the same denominators

  • Add and subtract fractions with the same denominators within one whole e.g. 5/7 +1/7 +6/7

  • Solve fraction problems

  • Tell and write the time from an analogue clock, including using Roman numerals from I to XIII

  • Tell and write the 12-hour and 24-hour clock

  • 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 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, e.g to calculate the time taken by particular events or tasks

  • Draw 2D shapes

  • Make 3D shapes using modelling materials

  • Recognise and describe 3D shapes in different orientations

  • Recognise angles as a property of a shape or a description of a turn

  • Identify right angles and recognise that two right angles make a half-term, 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

  • Measure the perimeter of simple 2D shapes
