Why do teachers love the SuperQuesters books?
- o Encourage learning through play – fundamental STEM skills such as problem solving, coding, sequencing, debugging and algorithms are introduced through play and practical application
- o Significant Personal, Social, Health, Economic (PSHE) benefits – QuestFriendz books use the latest educational thinking to build a growth mindset and show it’s OK to make mistakes
- o Cross-curricular STEM learning options – each adventure and teacher resource guide covers key aspects of the UK’s Computing, Maths and Science national curriculum, including reasoning and critical thinking which are core for pupils who are working at Greater Depth level (Key Stage 1). The quests and resource guides also cover core aspects of US primary education, including K12 Computer Science framework, Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Common Core State Standards (Math).
- o Representation matters – diverse characters show that anything is possible with clear thinking, logic and patience, enabling children of all backgrounds and abilities to identify with the characters and feel represented
- o An irresistible package – a combination of eye-catching artwork, contemporary design and quality materials create an appealing and enriching range of books that children will want to read, share and engage with
- o Reusability – with over 100 reusable stickers in each book, the stories can be enjoyed over and over again
Learning Beyond the Book
The STEM quests within each SuperQuesters book and lesson plan guide can be adapted to meet the needs of individual pupils and can be repeated and extended to help embed core learning skills. The classroom activities take learning beyond a traditional classroom setting, promoting physical activity, outdoor learning and, above all, opportunities for collaborative learning.
The engaging characters, narrative and quests help to fuel children’s imaginations and extend their vocabulary, key skills to support their learning and development in other areas of their school life as well.
