Please find, on this page, the core areas of Numeracy which are covered each week in P3. Each section below will contain an activity to be completed weekly. The activities can either be accessed here or will be found in booklets which have been sent home.  


These resources follow the schemes of work covered in P3. If you wish to extend your child's learning please do so based on the content covered on this site. 


You will find support materials, including a range of interactive games, to guide your instruction in the Helpful Resources section of the P3 site. 


Many Thanks,

Week beginning 23rd March 2020

Daily Mental Maths

Daily Mental Maths Booklets are a great resource to help revise and reinforce taught mental maths skills. 


Children should complete 1 column per day (Mon - Fri) in their Mental Maths Activity Booklet. 



Children are, as normal, being asked to learn 1 Number Story per week.  

Each story is laid out in your child's Number Stories Booklet which they have received home with them. 


Please learn only 1 story per week;

E.G. Week 1 - 14 addition 

        Week 2 - 14 subtraction 


This week your child should learn the number story:

Group 1 - story of 14 subtraction

Group 2 - story of 12 addition

Number Work 


In this section we will set out number work activities as we would teach them each week. 


1. Children will have a mental maths objective to cover each week. This will help to improve quick number recall.


2.  Children will have a written numeracy activity to complete each day. This will either be in the form of an uploaded worksheet or will be pages from the New Heinemann Maths booklets which have been sent home. 



This Week's Mental Maths Objective:

Children should practise adding a multiple of 10 to another multiple of 10 within 100.


For example:

20 + 10 = 30 or 30 + 20 = 50

Number Work Activity 1: 

In their number stories activity book children should complete one activity related to the number story they are learning.

Group 1 - complete an activity related to the story of 14.

Group 2 - complete an activity related to the story of 12.

Number Work Activity 2:  Addition of multiples of 10.


Pupil Sheet 22

Children choose two multiples of 10 and put these numbers on the leaves.  Add the numbers together and write the answer on the apple.  They can use the 'snake' number line if necessary.

For example 20 + 30 = 50


Pupil Sheet 23


This activity is for you and your child to complete.  You will need two dice and instead of using the numbers as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 they should be converted to 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 0.


Take turns to roll the dice and record the numbers, e.g. 20 + 30 = 50.

Then cross of your answer from the number strip.

The winner is the first person to cross off 5 different totals on the number strip.


Number Work Activity 3: Horizontal addition of tens and ones/units

When completing the addition questions-

1. First add the ones/units

2. Secondly add the tens

3. Finally add the two totals together.


For example:

23 + 34 =

  3 + 4 = 7

20 + 30 = 50

50 + 7 + 57

What's the number?

Adding 2 2-digit numbers

Topic Maths

Topic Maths includes Shape and Space, Measures and Data Handling.

We complete 1 piece of Topic Maths per week. 


Topic Maths Activity  Data Handling - Bar Graphs

NHM Shape, Measure and Data Handling Booklet pages 25, 26 and 27


Page 25 Using given data to draw a bar graph

1. Children count and record the number of each animal.  It might be helpful to cross off each pet when it has been counted.

2. On the bar graph colour the correct number of squares for each type of pet, 1 square equals 1 pet.

3. Answer the two questions at the bottom of the page.


Page 26 Organising data for a bar graph

1. Take each name in turn and ask your child 'How many letters are in that name?'

2. Show your child where to write that name in the table.

3. Score out that name on the sheet so it is not recorded for a second time.

4. Repeat this process for all the other names.

5. Ask your child how many names have 3 letters in them.

6. Colour that number of boxes on the first column of the graph starting at the bottom.

7. Repeat for 4 letter and 5 letter names.

8.  Add the name Salma to the table and the graph.


Page 27 Interpreting a bar graph

Ask your child questions about the graph -

   What is the graph about?

   How many different lunches are there?

   What are the lunches?

   What is your favourite lunch?

   Which of these four do you like the best?

1. Point to the 'Number of children' axis and explain that each box on the graph stands for 1 child.

2. Complete the questions below the graph.




Problem Solving

Problem Solving encourages children to think outside the box and apply known strategies to solve common numeracy problems.

Encourage your child to compete these activities as independently as possible to cultivate their problem solving skills.
