ClickView Primary

Recognised for supporting over 5,000 schools and colleges across the world, ClickView’s new primary series of video-based learning content offers a comprehensive range of engaging videos, specifically designed for the primary classroom.

For many years ClickView has worked closely with secondary schools, colleges and universities across the world; more recently they noticed a trend of their Multi Academy Trust users asking for content for their primary schools. As more schools recognise the power of short curriculum aligned videos in engaging and inspiring children to learn, this demand for key stage 1 and 2 content increased, particularly during and post lockdown. After two years in development, including research with a wide range of primary schools, the new ClickView primary product is live and available, and ClickView is confident this will be a welcome addition to primary classrooms and beyond across the UK.

Jonathan Bishop, CEO of Cornerstone Multi Academy Trust and Edtech Demonstrator School says:

ClickView provides us with high-quality video curriculum content with built-in interactive quizzes. This saves our teachers planning time, enhances lesson delivery and engages our learners””

 

Juniper Education – Sonar Curriculum

Robust curriculum planning made easy by Juniper Education

It takes a huge amount of work to plan and deliver an exciting, purposeful primary curriculum that keeps pupils engaged, challenged and making progress.
Senior leaders spend hours ensuring all subjects get equal weighting and every subject in every lesson is mapped to specific learning objectives in the national curriculum.

It’s a major undertaking that can be overwhelming, even for the most seasoned curriculum designer.

Juniper Education’s Sonar Curriculum provides a rigorous and robust framework, based on the primary national curriculum, which heads can use to map the knowledge, skills and understanding children are expected to develop in each of the core and foundation subjects across every year group.

There’s an extensive supply of pre-mapped resources teachers can customise to the exact context of each lesson too, plus Juniper’s suite of pupil trackers to measure the impact.

For children, the result is the progressive mastery of all subjects within a broad, balanced and coherent curriculum.

“You can tell straight away that Sonar Curriculum has been designed by educationalists who know the reality of the task and who understand schools, teachers and how children learn.”

Diane Raftery, head of Five Spires Primary Academy

The Just2easy Toolsuite

The parent portal is a brand new development for the Just2easy Toolsuite. It allows teachers to invite parents of their pupils (via email) to register and then login to the parent portal on iOS or Android devices ( or laptops etc. if preferred). Using the parent portal they can see many different aspects of online teaching and learning for any of their children. If they are registered for more than one child, they use a single log in which allows them to select the child they wish to view. They can then see homework, messages, stars, and online work for that chid. They may also upload work for the child, for example a photograph of artwork produced at home etc.
