Clicker in action!

13th March 2024

If you follow our social channels, you’ll know that we love sharing schools’ Clicker successes. What’s so brilliant about our most recent examples is how varied they are.


Clicker’s writing support comes in different shapes and sizes. From word prediction to sentence structure support and everything in between, pupils are great at using the tools that suit their learning best!


We love this idea – drawing pictures and writing matching sentences is a great way to get pupils to engage with their writing. Clicker also has a bank of images that pupils can insert into their documents in the CrickPix library if they’d prefer.


Using Clicker’s Connect Sets is a brilliant way to build pupils’ understanding of sentence structure – but you can also use colourful semantics within Clicker, too! We did a fantastic free webinar about it with Tom McDonald where he demonstrated how to build colourful semantics activities in Clicker. It’s still available on our website for you to watch today!


And lastly, using our wider curriculum resources from LearningGrids, this school have had fantastic fun writing and following their instructions for making paper aeroplanes!  

If your school uses Clicker, please share your lessons and writing with us – we absolutely love to see what your pupils have been learning about.
