A. The unit covers every non-fiction text type and fiction. The teacher’s notes in The Manual allow complete flexibility.

A. Yes definitely. It’s designed to excite and interest all children.
A. You can but you shouldn’t need to. Back From the Future covers every non-fiction text type and fiction.
A. How about asking the Y5 pupils to work as apprentice SSATs with ‘qualified’ Y6 SSATs? Next year they will be the experts and will be expected to take a leading role in all of the Back From the Future activities. Alternatively, look at the sister programme S.P.O.O.C.S.
A. Definitely. In fact you could talk to your partner primary schools and see if they would start it at the end of Y6 so that you can pick it up in Y7.
A. It’s perfectly possible to teach the Back From the Future unit by following the teacher’s notes in The Manual. However, we do offer training on Back From the Future. Teachers who have attended felt this was extremely useful. If you are interested in training offers, please contact us.
A. Three - one copy for each class teacher. You do not need to buy a multi-user licence.
A. 3 – 7 days unless there are circumstances beyond our control e.g. postal strikes.
