March production release

By Ingrid Candido

Welcome to our second content release for 2020! Sufficed to say it’s been an unprecedented few weeks since our last release. The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has instigated massive changes in the education sphere resulting in school closures and the growing necessity for remote teaching/learning practices. You can read more about how ClickView can help to prepare your school in dealing with the Coronavirus crisis here.

In happier news, this time of year sees an array of events happening, including World Poetry Day on March 21 – so why not celebrate it with your students by using our brand new Poetic Devices series? This new six-part series has been produced in conjunction with Red Room Poetry and explores imagery, alliteration, onomatopoeia (Year 3+) and other poetic devices including similes, metaphors and personification (Year 5+).

Additionally, ANZAC Day is commemorated on the 25 April and to recognise this we are releasing the final clip in our World War One series. Here students will learn about the different ways ANZAC Day is observed and how the enduring legacy of the ANZAC story has shaped Australia today.

It’s business as usual here at ClickView and our Content and Production teams have been busy preparing lots of exciting content for our latest release, albeit remotely. ClickView is here to help guide you and your students through these uncharted waters and are hard at it compiling playlists and resources to help teachers and students make sense of what is happening.

See below for what other content releases you and your students have to look forward.
