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.

Week beginning 30th 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 15 addition

Group 2 - story of 12 subtraction

This Week's Mental Maths Objective:

Children should mentally add a multiple of 10 to any number within 100.


For example:

25 + 10 = 35 or 37 + 20 = 57


NHM Addition and Subtraction to 100 page 5

Please complete page 5 in this booklet.

1. Use the blank number lines to help with the adding by jumping along the number line in 10s.

  For example 52 + 20 =

1. Put 52 at the start of the number line.

2. Jump 2 places along the number line. We jump 2 places because there are 2 tens in 20.

3. Each time you land on the number line add ten.

4. So 52 jumps to 62 then jumps to 72.

5. Record the answer as 72.

Number Work Activity 1: 

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

Group 1 - complete one activity related to the story of 15.

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


Number Work Activity 2:  Addition of multiples of 10.


Pupil Sheet 24


You will need one die 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.


1. Each question on the worksheet has missing numbers which need to be completed.

2. Roll the die and enter the number on the worksheet and then work out the answer.

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

Adding tens and ones/units

Topic Maths

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

We complete 1 piece of Topic Maths per week. 


Topic Maths Activity  Carroll Diagrams


NHM Shape, Measures and Data Handling pages 28 and 29


Page 28 Carroll Diagrams

First Diagram

1. Discuss the labels on the first diagram - what is an odd or even number?

2. Odd numbers end in a 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9 and even numbers end in a 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8.

3. Children sort numbers into the odd and even sections.


Second diagram

1. Discuss the labels on the second diagram - numbers less than 25 and not less than 25 (numbers above 25).

2. Ask your child could they change the label 'not less than 25' to something else ( above 25).

3. Children sort numbers into the 2 sections.


Page 29 Carroll Diagrams

First Diagram

1. Discuss the labels on the diagram.

2. Ask your child is 19 less than 25 then if the number is odd or even.

3. Place the number in the correct box.

4. Repeat for the other numbers.


Second Diagram

1. Discuss the labels on the diagram.

2. Ask your child is 30 on a blue shirt then if the number is a multiple of 5 (multiples of 5 are 5, 10, 15, 20 etc.).

3. Place the number in the correct box.

4. Repeat for the other numbers.

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.
