Year 3 Maths Plans
We provide Hamilton Year 3 maths both as weekly plans (below) and as flexible blocks. We will eventually be phasing out the plans, as we believe our short blocks offer you all of the same advantages and more. Find out more about the advantages of Hamilton's short blocks.
Place 3-digit numbers on a line; order and compare 3-digit numbers; find a number between two 3-digit numbers; understand place value in 3-digit numbers.
Mental addition and subtraction: Add and subtract pairs of 2-digit numbers using partitioning and near multiples; Add three 2-digit numbers. Mental subtraction using counting back and counting up. Includes bar model examples.
Written addition: Add three-digit numbers using expanded addition (one ‘carry’); Mental subtraction: count up to subtract two-digit numbers from three-digit numbers; use addition to check subtraction. Includes bar model examples.
Measure/convert lengths in centimetres and metres; measure/convert weight in kilograms and grams; estimate, measure objects and record in tables; represent and interpret data in bar charts.
Count in 1/4s and 1/2s; understand concept of fractions; begin to understand eighths; fractions with a total of 1: ¾ + □ = 1, 2/3 + □ = 1, 5/8 + □ = 1. Includes bar model examples.
Understand place value in 3-digit numbers, including money; Mental multiplication and division: multiply and divide numbers by 10 and 100 and understand the effect; understand that division is the inverse of multiplication.
Mental addition and subtraction of 1-digit numbers to and from 3-digit. Mental addition and subtraction of multiples of 10 and 100 to and from 3-digit numbers. Word problems, choose to add or subtract. Children use number facts, partitioning and counting up and counting back.
Add 3-digit numbers using written expanded and compact column addition. Mental subtraction by counting up to find the difference. Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction. Includes bar model examples.
Read the time on a 12-hour digital clock and to the nearest 5 minutes on an analogue clock, convert time between analogue and digital; begin to calculate time intervals in hours and minutes; understand angles as degrees of turn, right angles as quarter turns, clockwise and anticlockwise; understand that four right angles make a complete turn and two make half a turn.
Mental multiplication and division. Use the 4 times table to learn the 8 times table; recall x2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10 tables; use times tables to divide with remainders. Choosing which calculation to use to solve a word problem.
Mental multiplication and division by 4 by doubling or halving twice; find unit and non-unit fractions of numbers using x2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10. Includes bar model examples.
