It’s increasingly pointless to do this, but it never fails to amaze me how little effort can go into achieving the same goals that a year of work in school should achieve… so here goes, maths goals for Yr 3. (ie 9 months ahead of where Fran is now).
By the end of year 3, your child should be able to:
* read, write and order whole numbers to at least 1000 and know what each digit represents YES
* count on or back in 10s or 100s from any two- or three-digit number YES
* recognise unit fractions such as a half or third and use them to find fractions of shapes and numbers YES
* know how to add and subtract all numbers up to 20 YES
* use mental arithmetic to add or subtract a multiple of 10 (up to 100) from another two-digit number YES
* know his two, five and 10 times tables YES
* understand division and that it is the opposite to multiplication Not looked at it yet but knows how to “do” division in real life.
* understand units of time; seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years Well DUH. YES
* understand how money is written £s and p (e.g £3.45 = 3 pounds and 45 pence) YES
* choose and use appropriate operations (including multiplication and division) to solve word problems, explaining methods and reasoning. YES, with some support when on paper.
* identify right angles YES
* identify lines of symmetry in simple shapes and recognise shapes with no lines of symmetry YES
* solve a given problem by organising and interpreting numbers in simple lists, tables and graphs. YES
Not desperately taxing then really, is it? Perhaps i won’t worry about sending her to school for now 😉
