All lessons have extension or home learning tasks and the programme has sufficient material to run over a whole school year (around 100 hours).

Alternatively, the lessons can all be run independently and are suitable to be delivered by non-specialist and cover staff.  You can use them to support or run alongside existing programmes or to enhance a project you are undertaking or to support learning in a particular area or subject.  They also lend themselves to being used as enrichment days, where you can use groups of lessons to support a full or half days activities.
