Number and place value

In Year 3, children learn to:

• count from 0 in multiples of four, eight, 50 and 100;
• work out if a given number is greater or less than 10 or 100;
• recognise the place value of each digit in a three-digit number (hundreds, tens, and ones);
• solve number problems and practical problems involving these ideas.

In Year 3, children learn to:

• add and subtract numbers mentally including a three-digit number and ones;
• add and subtract numbers mentally including a three-digit number and tens;
• add and subtract numbers mentally including a three-digit number and hundreds.

• write and calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division using the multiplication tables that are known including for two-digit numbers.

Fractions (including decimals)

In Year 3, children learn to:

• count up and down in tenths; recognise that tenths arise from dividing an object into 10 equal parts and in dividing one-digit numbers or quantities by 10;
• recognise, find and write fractions of a discrete set of objects: unit fractions and non-unit fractions with small denominators;
• recognise and show, using diagrams, equivalent fractions with small denominators.

Measurement

In Year 3, children learn to:

• measure, compare, add and subtract lengths (m/cm/mm); mass (kg/g); volume/capacity (l/ml);
• 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 and 12-hour and 24-hour clocks;
• identify right angles, 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.

Statistics

In Year 3, children learn to:

• interpret and present data using bar charts, pictograms and tables.
