Three units delivered per year (six per two-year cycle). These are connected to the topic.
Each year, the following must be covered in depth: textiles, construction, mechanics and electricals (the latter is KS2 only). In addition, cooking and nutrition must be included. This can be a short, blocked unit, which may have cross-curricular links to the half-termly topic.
The units are usually delivered weekly during three half terms (approximately one hour per week) or blocked (approximately five hours or one day).
Units cover all the requirements of the National Curriculum over the two-year cycle.
