These units of learning have been created taking full account of the issues that have been raised by inspectors. Full consideration has also been given of recent research and of the balance between substantive knowledge and disciplinary knowledge in each subject.

There are three units of learning per year groups 1 to 6. (18 in all). However, there are also some additional units to allow flexibility and choice.

Each of the units follows a system which ensures that prior knowledge has been ignited (link it); that there is a focus on the main learning (composite) and that these are broken into component parts. In addition, the units seek to create a balance between the development of substantive knowledge and pupils' disciplinary knowledge. This part is known as the 'learn it'.

There are also 'check its' which should be used during the learning to ensure that pupils are keeping up and therefore negate the need to catch up at a later stage. These 'check its' can be used at any stage of the learning activity. To end the unit there are suggestions for pupils to present an aspect of their learning to others. This stage known as the 'show it' provides opportunities for pupils to demonstrate their learning to others.

The final part of the unit is an example of several retrieval activities which are specific to the learning. These would be used after the learning has been completed and maybe a term or so after to check that pupils have recalled key knowledge.
