Summer Term 2023
Maths No Problem Scheme
Here at Woodbridge Junior School, we use Maths No Problem. This term we will be covering:
Summer Term - Maths Coverage
This chapter helps pupil to learn about time 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.
In this chapter, pupils will spend an extended period exploring and working with fractions. They will be exploring fractions in greater depth than in the previous curriculum, so it is important to devote more time to this topic. Pupils will begin the chapter by counting in tenths and then understanding fractions as division. Pupils will move on to finding fractions of whole numbers as part of a set and looking at sharing 1 and more than 1. Pupils will explore equivalent fractions and look at simplifying fractions before comparing fractions with different denominators. Towards the end of the chapter, pupils will be adding and subtracting fractions. The chapter wraps up by applying content knowledge to sophisticated word problems.
Chapter: Lines and Shapes
This unit has pupils exploring the different types of lines in addition to properties of shapes, both 2D and 3D. To begin the unit, pupils will be identifying perpendicular and parallel lines, followed by horizontal and vertical lines. Pupils move on to describing 2D shapes and drawing them. Pupils will then be describing 3D shapes and making them using play dough.
Chapter: Perimeter of Figures
This units allows pupils to explore perimeter. While perimeter itself is simply combining the lengths of sides, it is important that it is taught before pupils are introduced to 'area' and not dealt with at the same time. Pupils will begin the unit by measuring the total length around a shape before moving onto grid paper to measure the combined lengths of each side. Pupils will be calculating perimeter by adding all of the lengths together, and ending the unit by calculating the perimeter of a rectangle with unknown sides that need to be determined.
