Maths: Hamilton's short maths blocks have all the benefits of our weekly plans. They also provide support and resources that were simply not possible when we produced the weekly plans. Find out about the advantages of short blocks.
Year 3 Maths Homework
For many parents, homework is the only picture they get of what their child does at school. For this reason, Hamilton have put a great deal of effort into writing suitable, fun and home-friendly activities for children and parents to share together. Children will benefit and so will parents and teachers!
The activities rehearse core numeracy skills that you may wish children to practise or keep on the boil. Read our maths homework blog for more advice about using them.
Look at monitoring and measuring time by making their own calendar for the month including all the activities they have done/will do.
Multiply by five using their own strategies to work out the costs of five items, for example books or DVDs.
Use metric measures, centimetres and metres, to find out how many of their own footprints can make a metre.
Think logically to make numbers greater than one using a small group of single digits. Can you make more with 8, 9, and 0 or 1, 2 and 3?
Experiment with numbers (10, 3, 15) and operations (add, subtract, multiply, divide) to find the largest and smallest numbers.
Practise their multiplication facts in a number grid game.
Use arithmetic skills in a game to find the number that adds to a 3-digit number. Think carefully to see who can be nearest to 50 to earn those winning points.
Practise adding amounts of money quickly. Think logically to write down amounts using only 7 out of 8 British coins.
Match digital and analogue times to those written in words. Round to the nearest 5 minutes.
Practise simple arithmetic skills by performing a number trick on their friends and family.
Join the dots in a simple grid to make at least six different polygons. Explore 2-D shapes.
Practise doubling very large numbers to see how much money they could earn in a week! Understand how quickly an exponential series rises to very large numbers.
