The Year 3 Autumn Place Value unit in Week 3 focuses on teaching children the concept of comparing objects and numbers up to 1,000. The National Curriculum objectives for this unit are comprehensive, covering the identification, representation, and estimation of numbers using various representations, as well as understanding the place value of each digit in a three-digit number. Students are expected to find 10 or 100 more or less than a given number, compare and order numbers up to 1000, read and write numbers up to 1000 in numerals and words, solve number problems, and count in multiples of 4, 8, 50, and 100. Key vocabulary includes terms related to place value, such as 'digit', 'numeral', 'base 10', and comparative language like 'greater', 'less', 'compare', and 'order'. The lesson plan includes a variety of resources such as base 10 blocks, place value counters, coins, worksheets, and a presentation to aid in teaching.

During the lesson, children will complete 'fluent in four' questions to recap previous learning and use comparative language and symbols to determine which numbers are the greatest or smallest. They will engage in practical activities using place value counters to represent and compare different three-digit numbers, focusing on the importance of place value rather than the sum of digits. Students will also have opportunities to discuss their reasoning, use inequality symbols, and apply different strategies to compare numbers. To support their learning, they can access online resources such as BBC Bitesize and Topmarks for interactive games and exercises. The lesson plan is designed to cater to different levels of understanding, with activities for those working towards expected standards and those ready for greater depth, ensuring that each child can progress in their understanding of place value and number comparison.
