Hornbeam Primary School


Year 3 Numeracy

In Year 3 children are taught to read and write numbers up to 1000 and are expected to learn the 3,4 and 8 times tables. They are shown how to use more formal written methods to add and subtract numbers with three digits and perform increasingly complex mental arithmetic with two digit numbers. They multiply and divide numbers using informal written methods. Their understanding of fractions is extended to include tenths and they are shown how to read and record the time to the nearest minute. They learn that angles are a unit of turn and learn about right angles.
