Year 3 Maths Plans
We provide Hamilton Year 3 maths both as weekly plans (below) and 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. Find out more about the advantages of Hamilton's short blocks.
Partition and represent 3-digit numbers. Place 3-digit numbers on an empty number line, order, compare and find a number between. Round 3-digit numbers to the nearest 10 and 100. Understand place value in money, writing amounts in pounds and pence. Use place value to add and subtract pounds, 10ps and 1ps.
Use expanded and compact written addition to add any pair of 3-digit numbers. Use rounding to estimate totals. Find patterns and make generalisations. Use mental subtraction with Frog counting up to subtract 2-digit numbers from 3-digit numbers and to subtract pairs of numbers within the same century. Includes bar model examples.
Double numbers to 50 using partitioning. Halve numbers to 100 using partitioning. Know times tables and division facts (1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 8x, 10x). Begin to use the grid method for written multiplication of 2-digit numbers (<30) by 1-digit numbers.
Measure capacity in litres and millilitres and convert between whole or half litres and millilitres. Measure length in metres, centimetres and millimetres, including measuring perimeters of 2D shapes. Draw a bar chart where one square represents 2 units. Tell the time to nearest minute, compare time durations and understand am and pm.
Add three or four 2-digit numbers using expanded column then compact column written addition. Use mental subtraction to count back to find change from £5, £10 and £20. Count up to find a difference between amounts of money (using Frog). Includes bar model examples.
Count in steps of 50, 100, 4 and 8. Work out the rule for a sequence. Count past 1000 and begin to understand place value in 4-digit numbers.
Mental multiplication and division. Scale up by multiplying by 4 (double twice) and by 10. Scale down by dividing by 4 (halve twice) and by 10. Divide numbers just beyond the times tables (no remainders). Divide numbers just beyond the times tables (with remainders).
Recognise that two right angles make a half-turn, 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, vertical, perpendicular and parallel lines. Count faces, vertices and edges of 3D shapes. Know units of time and the relationship between them.
Understand tenths, and find tenths of amounts. Understand fractions as both numbers and operators. Find unit and non-unit fractions of amounts. Find fractions equivalent to ½ and ¼. Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator within one whole. Includes bar model examples.
Written methods to add three or four 2-digit numbers using compact addition. Estimate answers. Use column addition to add three 3-digit numbers. Use column addition to add two amounts of money. Mental subtraction, counting up (Frog) to find change from £5, £10, £20 and £100. Includes bar model examples.
Mental addition and subtraction of three-digit numbers using place value and near multiples. Written multiplication using the grid method to multiply 2-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers. Mental division of numbers within and just beyond the times tables (with remainders). Solve correspondence problems.
