# Spring Term 2023

Maths No Problem Scheme

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

Spring 1 - Maths Coverage

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.

Spring 2 - Maths Coverage

Chapter 8: Money

This is a large chapter on money. It allows pupils to consolidate previous learning on recognising different denominations (both notes and coins) and the simple addition and subtraction of money. It further develops the concepts related to addition and subtraction of money using number bonds as a key method. Pupils are then expected to apply their new knowledge to solve word problems using bar modelling as a key strategy.

Chapter  9: Time

Pupils begin this chapter by telling the time using 'a.m.' and 'p.m.', telling time to the minute, using analogue and digital time, and telling time by using both the minute and hour hands. Pupils then learn to use the 24-hour clock and clocks using Roman numerals. After this, pupils are measuring and comparing time in seconds, minutes and hours, and finding start times and end times. Pupils will then complete the chapter by converting units of time and then finding a number of days in lengths of time.
