Profile Numeracy Objectives Year 3 

Number, Place Value and Rounding

count from 0 in multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100; finding 10 or 100 more or less than a given number

recognise the place value of each digit in a threedigit number (hundreds, tens, ones)

compare and order numbers up to 1000

identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations

read and write numbers to at least 1000 in numerals and in words

solve number problems and practical problems involving these ideas.
Additionand subtraction

add and subtract numbers mentally ,including:

a threedigit number and ones

a threedigit number and tens

a threedigit numberand hundreds

add and subtract numbers with up to three digits,using the efficient written methods of columnar addition and subtraction

estimate the answerto a calculation and use inverse operationsto checkanswers

solve problems,including missing number problems,using number facts,place value,and more complex addition and subtraction.
Multiplication and division

recall anduse multiplication and division factsfor 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 efficient written methods

solve problems,including missing number problems, involving multiplication and division,including integer scaling problemsand correspondence problems in which n objects are connected to m objects.
Fractions

countup and down in tenths;recognise that tenths arise from dividing an object into 10 equal parts and in dividing onedigit numbers or quantities by10

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

recogniseand show,using diagrams,equivalent fractions with small denominators

add and subtract fractionswith the same denominator within one whole (e.g. 5/7 +1/7 =6/7 )

compare and order unit fractions with the same denominator

solve problems that involve all of the above.
Measures

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 toXII,and 12hourand 24 hour clocks

estimate and read time with increasing accuracy to the nearest minute;record and compare time in terms of seconds,minutes,hoursand o’clock; use vocabularysuch as a.m./p.m., morning,afternoon,noon and midnight

know the number of seconds in a minute and the numberof days in each month, year and leap year

compare durationsof events,for example to calculate the time taken by particular events or tasks.
Geometry:properties ofshapes

draw 2D shapes and make 3D shapes using modelling materials;recognise 3D shapes in different orientations; and describe them with increasing accuracy

recognise angles as a propertyof shape and associate angles with turning

identify rightangles, recognise that two right angles make a halfturn, three make three quarters of a turn and four a complete turn;identify whether angles are greater than or less than a rightangle

identify horizontal,vertical,perpendicular and parallel lines in relation to otherlines.
Data

interpret and present data using barcharts, pictograms and tables

solve onestep and twostep questions such as‘How many more?’ and ‘How manyfewer?’ using information presented in scaled barchartsand pictograms and tables.
