How HeroesÂ helps you create an inclusive learning environment
We know each learner has different strengths and weaknesses, and learns best in different ways. In order to build on individual capabilities, helping students to learn and teachers to create an inclusive learning environment, each of our courses provides a range of components and methodology that helps you to meet the needs of everyone in your classroom.
- Heroes strongly promotes the idea of community starting with the Heroes Club in Cycle 1, progressing to the Heroes Community Centre in Cycle 2 and then to the wider world in Cycle 3 where they invite contributions to their blog from children around the world.
- At the Heroes club, all children are encouraged to try out new activities and be supportive of each otherâ€™s differences.
- Inclusive values such as teamwork, helping people, living and working together and making friends are woven into the life skills sections.
- The wide range of extension materials provide teachers with the flexibility they need to adapt the level according to their classroom needs.
Heroes includes various supplementary materials to cater for differing levels:
- Extension materials at the back of the Pupilâ€™s Book and the Workbook.
