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.
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).
