Year 6

Year 6 Curriculum Overview

Autumn 1

Living Things and their Habitat


-Describe how living things are classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics and based on similarities and differences, including microorganisms, plants, and animals


-All is One: Cells

Cells are building blocks of living things

Autumn 2

Living Things and their Habitat


-Give reasons for classifying plants and animals based on specific characteristics


-All is One: Genes and DNA

Cells are instructed by DNA molecules


-Understand that DNA carries the genetic instructions used in the growth, development, and function of all known living organisms and many viruses


Spring 1

Animals Including Humans


-Identify and name the main parts of the human circulatory system, and describe the functions of the heart, lungs, blood vessels and blood


-All is One: Blood Cells

-White blood cells are the cells of the immune system and they are produced in the bone marrow


-Red blood cells deliver oxygen to the body tissues via blood flow through the circulatory system


Spring 2

Animals Including Humans


-Recognise the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on the way bodies function


-Describe the ways in which nutrients and water are transported within animals, including humans


Summer 1



-Recognise that light travels on a straight line


-Use the idea that light travels on a straight line to explain that objects are seen because they give out or reflect light into our eyes


-Explain that we see things because light travels from light sources to objects and then to our eyes


-Use the idea that light travels on straight lines to explain why shadows have the same shape as the objects that cast them


-Understand that light is made of photons, which are a basic unit of nature called elementary particle


-Periodic table contains 118 elements that gives different colours of light

Summer 2

Evolution and Inheritance


-Recognise that living things have changed over time and that fossils provide information about living things that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago


-Recognise that living things produce offspring of the same kind, but normally offspring vary and are not identical to their parents


-Identify how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment in different ways and that adaptation may lead to evolution




-All Is One: time line of the universe

-Atoms are building block of universe

-Atoms differ only by the number of their protons

-The movement of electric charges is an electric current and produces a magnetic field

-the presence of electric charges produces an electric field


-Use recognised symbols when representing a simple circuit in a diagram


-Compare and give reasons for variations in how components function, including the brightness of bulbs, loudness of buzzers and on/off position of switches


-Associate the brightness of a lamp or the volume of a buzzer with the number and voltage of cells used in the circuit


-Understand the mechanism and structure of a simple device
