Measurement

Measure, compare, add and subtract: lengths (m/cm/mm); mass (kg/g); volume/capacity (l/ml)

Satsy Measures in not just for Year 6 pupils (although it mostly is)! In this section, you will find several useful diagrams and explanations as well as a few great interactive resources. It will, however, be necessary to choose levels according to the Year 3 pupils' existing and developing skills.

measure the perimeter of simple 2-D shapes

Toytheater as the name suggests is an American website so we need to find the color (or colour if you are in the UK) of the shape with a certain perimeter. In Perimeter Climber, chose the correct shape and up the ladder you go! Make a mistake and you will slide back down!

Add and subtract amounts of money to give change, using both £ and p in practical contexts

Satsy Money has several activities ideally suited to younger pupils and these can be adapted to meet the learning needs of all students. You will notice that I am a big fan of counting on and when finding change, it is no different! I prefer to use vertical recording for change as I feel it is easier to structure neatly and extract information.

Tell and write the time from an analogue clock, including using Roman numerals from I to XII, and 12-hour and 24-hour 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, am/pm, 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]

Although created as a revision tool for Year 6 pupils, the advice and activities are still useful for Year 3 learners; however, the levels chosen for the activities might need to be different to ensure accessibility. Hope you like how I calculate and record my work when finding durations of time!
