The EHV programme is suitable for primary school children of 4 to 12 years.
EHV is a series of Lesson Plans based on five universal core values, which transcend religious and cultural differences. It is a user-friendly resource pack, suitable for assemblies and classwork. Cross-curricular in its approach, some elements of the EHV programme focus on tranquillity, encouraging children to develop calmness, whereas other aspects help them build up assertiveness and self-esteem. It leads children to discover, explore, practise and imbibe lasting values, which they can readily apply in school, at home and in the wider community.
More than 2,000 schools in the UK and around the world have already found this deeply researched and clear approach to values education to be a long sought-after answer to seemingly insoluble problems facing our society.
This experiential, real-life learning programme is excellent for meeting the requirements of the curriculum for:
VALUES ARE CHANGING THE WORLD
Authoritative global RESEARCH shows that high quality, systematic VALUES EDUCATION:
EHV promotes social, emotional, moral and spiritual growth – elements found to be present where intellectual advancement and academic achievement are being maximised.
Each learning unit is laid out with an objective, an introduction to prompt discussion, a quotation, a song, ideas for quiet reflection and a range of suggested activities to deepen learning and a follow-up activity.
Many of the activities could generate personal activity records, which the children can learn to store digitally with tags for ease of reference.
Elements in the learning modules can be used discretely as stand-alone activities or incorporated into different parts of the curriculum, such as SMSC, PSHE and fundamental British values schemes of work. They also contain material that can be ideal for capitalising on precious teachable moments, for example, when a tragedy happens somewhere in the world.
The lesson plans promote integrated, high-quality learning experiences and provide a cogent, relevant curriculum, helping to prepare young people for life in Britain and the world of work.
A feature of the well structured units is that themes and corresponding activities can be selected to address specific issues or concerns or a particular need with a student.
