01 Independent writing

Enable developing writers, struggling writers and English language learners to take their first steps to independent writing.

A perfect ‘next step’ for Clicker Sentences users, Clicker Connect provides pupils with clusters of words, phrases and/or pictures to help them build a coherent piece of text.

Designed with the classroom in mind, Clicker Connect includes the Sassoon font, speech feedback and many other child-friendly features to create an accessible and engaging environment for pupils to work in.

"The app is a triumph because it is based on a simple idea that scaffolds independent writing skills...it kick-starts the writing process, helps children to be creative and gives them a clear sense of achievement."
