Long Term Plan for Year 6

Autumn 1

A Wizards' World

Synopsis: Children will write character and setting descriptions with a magical theme. They will focus on developing their understanding of figurative language to create an engaging, ‘magical’ narrative that interweaves character, setting and plot. A suggested stimulus for this unit is Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone; however, you may choose to use an alternative. In addition, the children will write a balanced argument, ‘Do wizards have the right to keep magic to themselves?’


In Science, children extend their understanding of light.

In Geography, children develop their fieldwork/geographical skills.

In Art, children create a collage focusing on visual and tactile qualities.

Year 6 Collage

In Year 6, we captured the artistic processes used in collage to create individual Hedwig owls.

We collectively used visual and tactile qualities to create an artistic piece as a year group.

As a class, we combined a range of different artistic materials to build up layers on Hedwig.

Autumn 2

Secrets of the Sarcophagus

Synopsis: Children carry out an in-depth study of Ancient Egyptian mummification and the burial ritual. They focus on Howard Carter, the archaeologist, and the discovery of Tutankhamun. They use this understanding to write an explanation text and a first-person account of the discovery. The children will also write a winter poem using figurative language.


In History, children sift and weigh evidence to support/refute historical claims.

In D&T, children create an educational product (sarcophagus) focusing on functionality and aesthetics.


On our launch day we had 4 different activities: timeline, hieroglyphics, making papyrus paper and mummifying an orange.

Spring 1


Synopsis: Children will use the novel “Wonderstruck” by Brian Selznick to learn about the geography of America and to write for a range of purposes. They will also use the book as inspiration to emulate the work of an illustrator and to learn about Evolution and Inheritance.


In Science, children learn about Evolution and Inheritance

In Geography, children examine where Wonderstruck is set between the Great Lakes in North America and New York City and will focus on physical and human features of North America. They will compare these with the UK.

In Art, children develop their own personal style by emulating the work of Brian Selznick to recreate images from the book. 

Spring 2


Synopsis: Children will use the novel “Wonderstruck” by Brian Selznick to use a range of fieldwork skills to investigate topography of the UK and how this has changed over time. They will write for a range of purposes: formal letter of complaint, balanced argument and a newspaper report. In DT, children will design and make their own Ferris wheel and in science learn about Living Things and their Habitats.

World Book Day

3rd March 2022

Science Week 

11th-20th March

During our Science Week in Year 6, we carried out a yeast investigation.

Using different ingredients: coffee, salt, sugar, oil, rice and flour, we explored which food yeast likes the best. 

Summer 2 

A Moment in Time

This summer we are being historians, scientists and artists.

In history, we are looking at WW2 and the Stone Age to Iron Age period.

In science, we are focusing on electricity, linking to the black out.

In art, we will be emulating cave art drawings with paint.
