Year 3
The Year 3 national curriculum introduces the following topics:
 count up and down in tenths; recognise that tenths arise from dividing an object into 10 equal parts and in dividing onedigit numbers or quantities by 10
 recognise, find and write fractions of a discrete set of objects:
unit fractions and nonunit fractions with small denominators  recognise and use fractions as numbers:
unit fractions and nonunit fractions with small denominators  recognise and show, using diagrams, equivalent fractions with small denominators
 add and subtract fractions with the same denominator within one whole [for example, 5/7 + 1/7 = 6/7 ]
 compare and order unit fractions, and fractions with the same denominators
 solve problems that involve all of the above
The Year 3 national curriculum introduces the following topics:
 measure, compare, add and subtract:
lengths (m/cm/mm); mass (kg/g); volume/capacity (l/ml)  measure the perimeter of simple 2D shapes
 add and subtract amounts of money to give change, using both £ and p in practical contexts
 tell and write the time from an analogue clock, including using Roman numerals from I to XII, and 12hour and 24hour clocks
 estimate and read time with increasing accuracy to the nearest minute; record and compare time in terms of seconds, minutes and hours; use vocabulary such as o’clock, am/pm, morning, afternoon, noon and midnight
 know the number of seconds in a minute and the number of days in each month, year and leap year
 compare durations of events [for example, to calculate the time taken by particular events or tasks]
The Year 3 national curriculum introduces the following topics:
 count from 0 in multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100; find 10 or 100 more or less than a given number
 recognise the place value of each digit in a 3digit number (100s, 10s, 1s)
 compare and order numbers up to 1,000
 identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations
 read and write numbers up to 1,000 in numerals and in words
 solve number problems and practical problems involving these ideas
The Year 3 national curriculum introduces the following topics:
 add and subtract numbers mentally, including:

 a threedigit number and 1s
 a threedigit number and 10s
 a threedigit number and 100s
 add and subtract numbers with up to 3 digits, using formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction
 estimate the answer to a calculation and use inverse operations to check answers
 solve problems, including missing number problems, using number facts, place value, and more complex addition and subtraction
The Year 3 national curriculum introduces the following topics:
 recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables
 write and calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division using the multiplication tables that they know, including for twodigit numbers times onedigit numbers, using mental and progressing to formal written methods
 solve problems, including missing number problems, involving multiplication and division, including positive integer scaling problems and correspondence problems in which n objects are connected to m objects
The Year 3 national curriculum introduces the following topics:
 interpret and present data using bar charts, pictograms and tables
 solve onestep and twostep questions [for example ‘How many more?’ and ‘How many fewer?’] using information presented in scaled bar charts and pictograms and tables
