Mars Rovers

In Year 6, children designed and created their own Mars Rovers. Each group had to create their own electrical circuit and then combined this with a series of pulleys and levers to operate the rover.

We Remember

As part of our History topic, "When is it right to fight?" we held a 'lecture' day where children learnt all about WW2. We painted poppies onto pebbles and placed them at the local Cenotaph to commemorate those who lost their lives in the World Wars. 

Art Attack

We love Art lessons in Year 6. As part of an art project based on the book, 'Rain before Rainbows', we practised sketching dragons and then used oil pastels to add colour and texture to these.

Our Learning                                                                      

At Wath Central, our curriculum is underpinned by a variety of concepts that link to the wider world, making an impact in

today's society. Due to the impact of COVID-19, a recovery curriculum will be established at the start of the academic year

and a focus on children driving the learning focus will be prominent throughout school. 


In Year 6, your child will be involved in a variety of different reading activities. We have four reading sessions a week,

alongside our in-school library visit which takes place throughout the term. Using a novel of study, we link our writing

activities to reading and include a focus reading week at the end of each writing unit. As a school, we encourage children to read at home at least four times a week. To encourage reading at home, we reward dojo points and children are entered into a termly reading raffle to receive a prize for their hard work at home.


Children receive high quality English teaching daily at a level which is appropriate to their needs and as part of a learning

journey. To coincide with the teaching of reading, we have a text at the core of our English lessons. We then use the text

as a stimulus to produce interesting compositions and develop our writing skills through focussed SPAG (Spelling,

Punctuation and Grammar) sessions. Our texts will link to one of our concepts each term to encourage further links to our

projects. We also have discrete spelling sessions to study spelling rules appropriate for our age and study vocabulary

through discrete vocabulary lessons. 


Children receive high quality Mathematics teaching daily at a level which is appropriate to their needs and as part of a learning journey. Using advice provided by the Maths Hub White Rose scheme, children are encouraged to learn new skills, apply concrete understanding to problems and justify ideas through reasoning sessions. In addition to our daily Maths lessons, we also have Maths Meetings to develop the retention of key skills. These take place discretely and focus on fun, engaging activities to revisit prior learning.

End of KS2 SATs

During the May of Year 6, all children are required to carry out Standard Assessment Tests (SATs) in Reading,

Mathematics and GPaS (Grammar, Punctiation and Spelling.) On occasion schools will also be randomly selected to

carry out SAT’s in Science. Children will be supported, both in the run up to the assessment and during the

assessments by our Year 6 team, in order to enable them to fulfil their full potential. Children’s writing will also be

assessed against National Standards during the course of Year 6. More information on the KS2 SATs and how to 

support your child can be found here.


Important Information

  • P.E. sessions - Our current P.E. days are Monday and Tuesday. We recommend that your child has their P.E. kit at school all week in order to participate in both of these sessions, including if some sessions have to be rearranged due to unforeseen circumstances. 

  • Homework - Reading cards and spellings are checked weekly on a Friday. Homework projects and the date they need to be handed in are provided on the project overview that you can access above. All children will be able to celebrate their project with the class and discuss the production of their homework.

  • Keeping in Contact - At Wath Central, we share our achievements on various platforms. For day-to-day communication, we use ClassDojo where we share what we get up to during the day and communicate with parents about upcoming events. We also use our twitter (@wathcentral) to celebrate recent successes from our year group. Finally, keep checking here for highlights and recent happenings within our classrooms.
