Within Explorations you have to submit two individual research reports. These are completed during the last unit in year 9 and 10, allowing year 11 students the opportunity to complete a third if they need to.
For the other pieces you should complete a variety of different reports as a smaller group and individually. The outcome of your report should be varied, ranging from a poster, infographic t some sort of performance. A key thing to remember is that you CANNOT complete an essay in unit 1 -3 unless you are in year 11.
