In maths year 3 will be looking at:


· Place value– Children will be recognising the value of each digit in a three-digit number.

· Estimation– compare and order numbers up to 1000 and looking at their rounding skills.

· Measure– Children will be measuring and comparing different lengths, masses and volume.

· Addition and subtraction– Children will be able to add and subtract numbers mentally. Children will be taught to add and subtract using the formal written method.

· Problem solving– we will be solving problems, including missing number problems, using number facts, place value and more complex addition and subtractions.

· Angles– They will be taught to recognise that angles are a property of a shape or a description of a turn.

· Recognise that angles are a property of shape or a description of a turn

· 2D shapes– Children will be able to draw 2D shapes and recognise their properties.

· Perimeter– We will be measuring the perimeter of simple 2D shapes.

At the moment in Maths we are rehearsing how to use formal written methods for mutliplying 2-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers.



Use a dice (ten-sided if you have one or six-sided is fine), roll it twice to create a two digit number (such as 34) and then once more for a one-digit number (6). Decide how you would like to solve your multiplication: Partition your 2-digit number into Tens and Ones (30 and 4) then multiply the Ones by your 1-digit number (4 x 6 = 24) and the Tens by your 1-digit number (30 x 6 = 180). Lastly add your answers together to get the solution (180 + 24 = 204).

On the other hand you can use the formal written method:


x 6
