Free Story and KS2 Resource Pack for ‘Heroes: Incredible Stories of Courageous Animals’

What's included?

Full story plus teacher's pack featuring cross-curricular activity ideas for Y4-6

Key Stage



Years 4-6

Heroes by David Long is the perfect KS2 non-fiction class reader for Years 4–6, recommended for children aged 9+.

It follows the success of Survivors: Extraordinary Tales from the Wild and Beyond, which was hugely popular in schools and won the Best Book with Facts Blue Peter Award in 2017.

This Resource Pack aims to give your class a sneak preview into the book by introducing the style of the stories and the themes within them, sparking pupils’ imaginations and inspiring them to read on.

As such, they are linked to one particular story in the anthology: ‘Voytek: The Bear Who Carried Bombs’ (page 35) – which has exclusively been offered to teachers as a free download.

Inside this pack you’ll find reading comprehension questions to improve reading inference, retrieval and predictive skills, as well as suggestions for classroom activities to enjoy the book across different areas of the curriculum – from creating WWII battlefield freeze-frames, to writing chronological timelines, to creating drama inspired by Heroes.
