Navio: The digital solution for teaching and learning English.

Pupils personalise their own avatar before becoming immersed in a 3D world that they discover as they complete activities in English, gaining rewards and knowledge as they go, accompanied by their avatar guides. With intuitive navigation and a gamified environment, pupils are motivated to progress through the levels.

Teachers enjoy a seamless transition between the course book and digital teaching activities, with the option to track both individual and class progress and allocating additional rewards and points. With both online and offline access to the Macmillan Education Teacher’s App.

Families feel reassured knowing that children are practising English in a safe and enjoyable digital environment, strengthening the home-school connection.

How New High Five! 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.


  • New High Five! contains various materials which cater to different ability levels, such as the dual level worksheets.
  • The ‘Culture around the world’ lesson in Cycle 3 and the ‘ways of thinking’ element of the 21st Century Skills lessons encourage pupils to think about values, and the message of inclusion is reinforced visually by featuring coursebook characters from diverse ethnic backgrounds.


New High Five! includes various supplementary materials to cater for differing levels in the Macmillan Education Teacher App:

  • Grammar practice: worksheets at standard and higher level.

  • Unit, termly and end-of-year tests with baseline and higher-level versions.

  • Progress Tracker to follow each individual student’s progress and easily recognise areas of the curriculum that need extra attention.
