Maths curriculum:

In year 3 we will continue to develop the children’s understanding of a wide range of mathematical areas including time, money, shape and space, fractions and measures. We will also be continuing to develop our calculation skills; working with larger 3 and 4 digit numbers and refining our written and mental methods. We also strive to cement the children’s understanding of the 3, 4, 6 and 8 times tables. Some of our focuses include:

  • Finding 10 and 100 more or less than a given number
  • Add and subtract 3 digit numbers mentally
  • Count up and down in tenths
  • Recognise the place value of each digit in a 3 digit number
  • Identify parallel and perpendicular
