Year 3 Maths End Points


Number and Place Value

  1. Counting and Reading Numbers: Pupils should be able to count from 0 in multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100. They should confidently read and write numbers up to 1000 in numerals and words.
  2. Number Comparisons and Ordering: Master the skill to compare and order numbers up to 1000 and identify the position of a number in a sequence.

Addition and Subtraction

  1. Calculations with Three-digit Numbers: Perform addition and subtraction using three-digit numbers and ones, tens, and hundreds, utilising formal written methods like column addition and subtraction.
  2. Problem-solving: Apply addition and subtraction to solve problems, including those involving money and measures, demonstrating understanding through written methods.

Multiplication and Division

  1. Times Tables: Know and use times tables for the 3, 4, and 8 multiplication tables, showing recall without hesitation.
  2. Multiply and Divide: Demonstrate ability to multiply two-digit numbers by one-digit numbers, using mental and progressing to formal written methods; similarly, with divisions including using arrays and sharing techniques.


  1. Understanding Fractions: Understand unit fractions as a division of a quantity and non-unit fractions as several parts of one whole. Recognise and use fractions as numbers and find fractions of a set of objects.
  2. Fractions on the Number Line: Represent fractions on a number line by measuring and marking intervals suitably.


  1. Measure and Compare: Measure, compare, add, and subtract lengths (m/cm/mm), mass (kg/g), volume/capacity (l/ml), and time (seconds/minutes/hours).
  2. Understanding Perimeter: Calculate the perimeter of simple 2D shapes, including those that are made up of combining rectangles.


  1. Properties of Shapes: Identify and describe the properties of 2D shapes, including the number of sides and line symmetry in vertical lines. Also, describe the properties of 3D shapes including the number of edges, vertices, and faces.
  2. Position and Direction: Describe movement between positions as translations of a given unit to the left/right and up/down.

These endpoints ensure students develop a solid mathematical foundation, prepare them for future mathematical challenges, and align with expectations set by the 2014 National Curriculum in England.
