Extra Maths Support - Year 3
Each week, inevitably, there are some children who are unable to succeed on the age-related expected objectives. These extra support activities can be done by a teaching assistant with a small group of children. There are two activities for each week, linked to the maths in Hamilton’s plans for that week. Each activity consists of a detailed but simple bullet-pointed lesson outline for the TA and a Child Sheet. These intervention activities, if used consistently as you go along, have the potential to make a lot of difference to the children who are below ARE.
Picture the number (1): Understanding place value in 3-digit numbers; Beginning to compare 3-digit numbers. Tag to 200 (2): Placing numbers between 100 and 200 on a 0 to 200 beaded line.
Totally investigative (1): Adding any pairs of 2-digit numbers using partitioning (including 1s > 10 AND 10s > 100). Frog goes freestyle (2): Subtracting pairs of 2-digit numbers with a bigger gap, e.g. 84 - 37, using counting up (Frog).
Double decisions (1): Doubling numbers up to 50. Harder halves (2): Halving even numbers to 100.
Tumbler teaser (1): Measuring in centimetres and millimetres; measuring to the nearest 25 millimetres. Round and round (2): Telling the time to 5 minutes, both past and to the hour.
Pattern spotters (1): Adding any pairs of 2-digit numbers using partitioning (including 1s > 10 AND 10s > 100). Read it (2): Finding change from £1.
Ladders to success (1): Count in steps of 50 from 0 to 1000. Triple totals (2): Partitioning 3-digit numbers, and combining 100s, 10s and 1s to make 3-digit numbers.
Double, double (1): Multiplying by 4 by doubleing twice; Dividing by 4 by halving twice. Flip flops (2): Dividing within tables by 3, 4 and 5 (no remainders).
