Rise and Shine is a seven-level* primary course that empowers every child to reach their potential and shine. Targeted support throughout helps teachers ensure that learners grow in confidence and achieve their best, preparing them to become global citizens of tomorrow.
Clear, personal learning journeys
Learners understand exactly what they are learning and why, thanks to the skills development work and clear Global Scale of English (GSE) learning objectives. Each unit follows five stages, signposted by colored stepping stones in the Pupil’s Book. Learners are always aware of their learning goals and can chart their progress at the end of each stage through a clear 'I can shine' activity.
Rise and Shine is specially developed to support every pupil to achieve their best. Creating an inclusive environment helps learners with learning differences and supports those learners who don't have a learning difference by making them more aware, tolerant, and understanding of each other.
Each unit has a different global citizenship focus that encourages learners to think about global and local issues, with emphasis on cultural awareness, empathy and social-emotional skills development. The overarching unit topics have been developed with reference to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
English is more than just a school subject in the 21st century – it is a medium through which children can learn about life, and global and local issues which are relevant to them. Rise and Shine learners face exciting tasks that help them build a greater understanding of themselves and the world around them, all the while working towards clear learning goals.
Each level of Rise and Shine takes place in a different setting that learners can relate to and explore. Learners relate to the importance of the local neighbourhood and how so much of the characters’ lives centres on family, friends, and neighbours. Dedicated functional language lessons, beautiful photographs, global citizenship themes and videos reinforce a connection with the real world.
There’s a student area with extra practice, story animations videos, songs and games. Unique 360 online games, powered by educational games developer Seppo, give students more reasons to practice English.
