West Street Community Primary School and Nursery


In Maths, we follow the White Rose Maths scheme of work. Using this scheme, children become familiar with a variety of methods of calculation, ways of representing numbers and are taught how to apply these skills to problem solving situations. Children are encouraged to combine the use of concrete resources, pictorial representations, written and mental methods of calculation.


In Year 3, your child will continue to develop their understanding of numbers and start to calculate using formal written methods. They will learn a lot more about fractions, including tenths. They will find perimeters of 2D shapes, use the 24-hour clock, recognise angles, and start to use bar charts.


They’ll count in steps of 4, 8, 50 and 100 and order numbers to 1000. They’ll partition numbers into 100s, 10s and 1s, add and subtract three-digit numbers, and multiply two-digit by one-digit numbers. They will be taught the 3, 4, and 8 times tables and begin to add and subtract fractions. It is important children are confident in their 2, 5, 10, 3, 4 and 8 times tables ready to begin Year 4.
