Happy Children Inspired to Learn


Spring 1


Chapter 5 - Length


This chapter looks at length in metres and centimetres before moving on to kilometres. Pupils will learn to measure different items using centimetres, metres and kilometres. They will also be able to convert different units of measurement as well as compare different lengths. The chapter ends with five lessons on problem solving involving length, in which pupils use their mental and procedural skills to solve problems with the aid of the bar model method for visualisation.


Chapter 6 - Mass


This chapter covers mass. The chapter begins with measuring mass using scales. Pupils look at different units to measure mass, specifically grams and kilograms. They will become well-versed in reading weighing scales that have different values for each marking. Once raw skills are achieved, pupils will attempt basic word problems which will extend to more challenging word problems. There will also be more exposure to bar modelling, which will be the key strategy used to solve the word problems.


Chapter 7 - Volume


This chapter introduces volume and capacity. Pupils will learn to measure volume using millilitres and litres. They will also come across various problem-solving questions on volume and capacity.

Autumn 2 - Maths Coverage


Here at Woodbridge Junior School, we use Maths No Problem. This term we will be covering:


Chapter 3: Multiplication and Division

In this chapter, pupils will cover the multiplication and division of 3, 4 and 8. Pupils will then get to use their experience of multiplication and division to solve word problems


Chapter  4: Further Multiplication and Division

This chapter covers multiplying by a 2-digit number. The first few lessons look at decomposing a number into tens and ones so that the multiplication is easily managed and pupils can see the concept using Base 10 blocks. Lessons move onto multiplying where regrouping is necessary before pupils start to look at division. Decomposing numbers is critical in making both multiplication and division manageable for pupils and this is practised throughout the chapter. Once pupils master multiplication and division, they focus on solving problems using the multiplication and division methods dealt with in previous lessons

Autumn 1 - Maths Coverage


Here at Woodbridge Junior School, we use Maths No Problem. This term we will be covering:


Chapter 1: Numbers to 1000

This chapter covers numbers up to 1000 and focuses on the value of each digit: place value. Pupils will learn how to compose and decompose numbers, compare, order and look for patterns.


Chapter  2: Addition and Subtraction

This chapter covers addition and subtraction. The chapter starts off with simple addition before moving on to addition where renaming is required. Subtraction is also covered in a similar way where simple subtraction is mastered before moving to subtraction where renaming is required. Once pupils master addition and subtraction, they start to look at problem solving questions and practice using bar models.
