Hi,
My biology teacher goes through things that aren’t on the spec. I was wondering if we need to know about it or not, like is everything we need to know on the spec or not?

Knowing more than what you need will never harm you. But it's the key to A*... Your teacher seems to be great and your teacher has years of experience, he/she knows what he/she is doing.

If it's not on the spec then you don't need to know it for the exams. However, just as Hammad(214508) has said, knowing more will never harm you, and they're right, it's the key to A* - if that's what you're aiming for. I would encourage you to learn things beyond the spec. I always learnt things in more detail than I needed and I still do, because it helps you to remember the easier stuff. If you understand things in more detail that you need to, you are able to work the easier things out as opposed to just memorising facts.
