Yes I’m 7 months into a 2 year combined course of N4/5 in the same class. Our kids picked in S2 for S3/4, although this will change since our recent HMIe inspection….
I didn’t start the course off but have come in since. However, the thinking had been to keep software development towards the end so that it would be fresh in their minds for the N5 course assignment rather than the first thing they did.
Also that we are going to use the unit assessments provided and therefore will teach ISDD and SDD as separate units of work to allow these to be assessed. I’ll need to teach SDD outcomes 1,2,3 together for the unit assessment approach rather than splitting it between ISDD.
