Extra Maths Support - Year 3
The extra support activities below match Hamilton’s weekly maths plans. We now also provide Year 3 maths as short blocks. We will eventually be phasing out the plans, as we believe our short blocks offer you all of the same advantages and more, including the integration of the problem-solving investigations into each unit of study. Find out more about the advantages of Hamilton's short blocks.
Bigger or Beaten (1): Partitioning and comparing 2-digit numbers. Coin count up (2): Writing amounts of money in pounds and pence.
Perfect pairs (1): Addition facts for 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10. Patterns practice (2): Using addition facts to add single-digit numbers to 2-digit numbers, e.g. using 5+3 = 8 to work out 25 + 3 (not crossing 10s).
Splitting sums (1): Adding 10s numbers; Beginning to use partitioning to add pairs of 2-digit numbers. Tiptoe to ten (2): How many to the next 10, e.g. 36 + □ = 40.
Solid specials (1): Relationship between 2D and 3D shapes. Double doings (2): Doubling numbers from 11 to 20; halving even numbers from 22 to 40.
Double and halves (1): Double multiples of 5; Halving multiples of 10. Hops, skips and jumps (2): Counting in 2s from 0 to 20; Counting in 5s from 0 to 50.
Spider sums (1): Adding 10s to 2-digit numbers (answers less than 100); Subtracting 10s from 2-digit numbers. Money matters (2): Adding and subtracting £1, 10p and 1p (not crossing boundaries).
Jolly Jumping (1): Adding 9 to 2-digit numbers. Super simple subtractions (2): Subtracting 9 from 2-digit numbers.
Tens jigsaws (1): Finding, then knowing by heart pairs of numbers with a total of 10. A hop and a jump (2): Finding how many are needed to make the next 10, and the next 10 after that, e.g. 37 + ? = 40, and 37 + ? = 50.
Pink past and blue to (1): Telling the time to the quarter hour on analogue and digital clocks. Bug count (2): Understanding the concept of mulitplication, 'clever counting'.
Monster multiplications (1): Counting in 3s - 'clever counting' and multiplication. Beads and rings (2): Dividing by 3, 5 and 10.
Fair fractions (1): Understanding what 1/2 and 1/4 are; Finding 1/2 and 1/4 of amounts (whole number answers). Alien adventure (2): Finding 1/3 of amounts.
