Year 6 Long Term Plan 2023/4


Autumn 1

There is only one way to design an effective product. Support or Challenge?

The children will design and make a functional product which cleans up litter.

Using their knowledge of circuits, they will design an electrical component that will power this machine.

The children will investigate how to make the elements of their product more effective and think carefully of the aesthetics of it.


Project outcomes:

  • Designing a machine to clean up litter
  • Children to present the data to showcase how effective their machine is

Autumn 2



Why were shelters important in WWII?

  • Children to work in small groups to build an effective model of a bomb shelter that can withstand a given weight from a dropped height.
  • Investigations to show the effectiveness of their bomb shelter model.

They will then use their findings to work collaboratively as a whole class to create a shelter big enough for an adult to fit inside
