Mathematics National Curriculum for Year 3.
Number  number and place value
The children will be taught to:

count from 0 in multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100; find 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 up to 1000 in numerals and in words

solve number problems and practical problems involving these ideas.
Number  addition and subtraction
The children will be taught to:
 add and subtract numbers mentally, including:
 a threedigit number and ones
 a threedigit number and tens
 a threedigit number and hundreds
 add and subtract numbers with up to three digits, using formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction
 estimate the answer to a calculation and use inverse operations to check answers
 solve problems, including missing number problems, using number facts, place value, and more complex addition and subtraction.
Number  multiplication and division
The children will be taught to:

recall and use multiplication and division facts for 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 formal written methods

solve problems, including missing number problems, involving multiplication and division, including positive integer scaling problems and correspondence problems in which n objects are connected to m objects.
Number  fractions
The children will be taught to:
 count up and down in tenths; recognise that tenths arise from dividing an object into 10 equal parts and in dividing onedigit numbers or quantities by 10
 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
 recognise and show, using diagrams, equivalent fractions with small denominators
 add and subtract fractions with the same denominator within one whole
 compare and order unit fractions, and fractions with the same denominators
 solve problems that involve all of the above.
Measurement
The children will be taught to:

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 to XII, and 12hour and 24hour clocks

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

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

compare durations of events [for example to calculate the time taken by particular events or tasks].
Geometry  properties of shape
The children will be taught to:

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

recognise angles as a property of shape or a description of a turn

identify right angles, 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 right angle

identify horizontal and vertical lines and pairs of perpendicular and parallel lines.
Statistics
The children will be taught to:

interpret and present data using bar charts, pictograms and tables

solve onestep and twostep questions [for example, ‘How many more?’ and ‘How many fewer?’] using information presented in scaled bar charts and pictograms and tables.
