Key Stage 2 maths, level 3 - what you need to know.

The old KS3 maths used levels. This is what you needed to know for level 3.

Number System

I am starting to read, write, count, and order numbers to 1000.

I can read, write, count, and order numbers to 1000

I can round 2 digit and 3 digit numbers to the nearest 10/100

I can multiply whole numbers by 10

I can read, write, count, and order numbers to at least 1000

I know the value of the digits and can partition numbers

I can divide whole numbers by 10

I can recognise negative numbers and continue positive /negative number sequences and find missing numbers

Fractions and decimals

I can use fractions such as 1/2, 1/4, 3/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/10 etc in shapes

I can use fractions such as 1/2, 1/4, 3/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/10 and 2/5, 4/10 in shapes

I can use fractions such as 1/2, 1/4, 3/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/10 for sets of objects

I can recognise some fractions that are equivalent to 1/2

I am beginning to use decimal notation in context (eg £3.06 = 306p)

Calculating Operations

I can find a division fact from a multiplication fact (eg 14 × 5 = 70, 70 ÷ 5 = 14

I can find the associated number statements for a given multiplication fact (eg 14 × 5 = 70, 70 ÷ 5 =14 , 70 ÷ 14 = 5)

I can use a calculator and inverse operations to find missing numbers, including decimals

I can use inverses in number problems (eg I think of a number, double it and add 5.The answer is 35. What is the number?)

I can understand the = sign in balancing equations (eg 7 × 10 = 82 – ? )

Topic level 5c level 5b level 5a
Mental

I know number pairs that total 100 (eg 37 + 63 = 100)

I know the multiplication tables: 2×, 3×, 4×, 5×, 6×, 10×

I know the complements of number additions to 100 (eg 100 – 37 = 63)

I understand that to find a quarter of a number I can half it and half it again

I know the multiplication tables: 7× , 8×, 9×

I can add/subtract two, two digit numbers mentally (eg 39 + 19 = 58 , 91 – 35 = 56)

I know the doubles of numbers to 50 (eg 32 + 32 =)

Solving

I can solve more complex one step problems (including money and measures) that involve any of the four operations

I can use the mental recall of addition and subtraction facts to 20 to solve problems

I can solve two step problems that involve addition and subtraction

I can solve two step problems (including money and measures) that involve any of the four operations and remainders

Written

I can add and subtract two, two digit numbers using a column method, including carrying down and borrowing

I can use written methods that involve bridging 10 and 100

I can add and subtract two, three digit numbers using a column method , including carrying down and borrowing

I can add and subtract decimals in context (eg money)

I can multiply a two digit numbers by 2,3,4,5, 6, 10

I can divide a two digit numbers by 2,3,4,5,10 with whole number answers and remainders

Shape Properties

I can describe the properties of the shapes in Level 2b (eg flat faces, curved edges)

I can sort the shapes in Level 2b using more than one criterion (eg pentagon/not pentagon or edges equal/not equal)

I can recognise right angles in different orientations

I understand 'regular' and 'irregular'

I can recognise and name 'acute' and 'obtuse' angles

I can name 'right angled ' and 'equilateral' triangles

I can draw the reflection of a shape in a mirror line

I am beginning to recognise the nets of a cone, cube, cuboid, triangular prism, triangular/square based pyramid

I can demonstrate that a shape has reflection symmetry by folding it, and when it doesn't

I can recognise the nets of a cone, cube, cuboid, triangular prism, triangular /square based pyramid

I can relate 3D shapes to drawings and photographs of them, including from different view points

I can compare and order angles less than 180 degrees

Position and movement

I can recognise the shapes in Level 2b in different orientations

I can draw the reflection of a shape in a vertical/horizontal mirror line which is along the side of the shape

I can give directions using left and right

I can draw the reflection of a shape in a vertical/horizontal mirror line which does not touch the sides of the shape

I can give directions using clockwise and anti clockwise

I can reflect a shape in a diagonal mirror line which runs along the side of the shape

I can give directions using 90° /quarter turns

Measures

I can tell the time to the nearest 5 minutes and calculate time durations that go over the hour

I can use m/cm, kg/g, l/ml and I know which measuring tool to use

I can draw and measure lines to the nearest 1/2 cm

I can use km/ m/cm, kg/g, l/ml and I know which units to use

I can read scales (eg 2, 10) to the nearest half division

I can tell the time to the nearest minute

I understand angle as a measure of turn and know 360 degrees is a whole turn

I am beginning to understand area as a measure of surface and perimeter as length

I can use km/ m/cm /mm, kg/g, l/ml and I know which units to use

I can find the area of shapes by counting squares

I am beginning to find the perimeter of squares and rectangles

I can tell the time, know am/pm and I can calculate time intervals

Data:Process Show

I can gather data to answer a question using a tally chart and frequency (totals) table

I can use a Venn /Carroll diagram using more than one criterion (eg right angles and equal sides)

I can construct a bar chart (eg scale of 2) and pictogram (eg one symbol represents 10)

I can decide the best way to present my data (bar chart, Venn diagram, pictogram)

Interpretation

I can interpret a tally chart and frequency (totals) table

I can extract and interpret information in bar charts, pictograms, Venn/Carroll diagrams

I understand 'certain' and 'impossible' in probability
