Boo’s Big Day: A Story About Emotions
This Miniclip, designed for Key Stage 1 students, provides an introduction to recognising and naming emotions that children feel. The video introduces emotions by following 7-year-old Boo on a regular day to see how different moments cause her to feel various emotions. Students will see moments when Boo feels happy, embarrassed, grateful, sorry, excited, loved, confident, and more while also learning about how her body physically responds to these emotions.

The Digital Literacy series: Fake News
Fake News – a danger to health, social cohesion and democracy, or just a quick and entertaining way to learn about what’s happening in the world?
Young people are among the most prolific internet users, but they are also some of the most vulnerable and impressionable. These young users need to be equipped with particular knowledge and skills to navigate digital platforms, especially social media communities, in an informed, safe and responsible manner.
This new six-part Digital Literacy video series will ensure students can:
- Spot fake news and understand its’ risks by analysing everyday examples of hoaxes, sensationalism, scams, propaganda, satire, spin and clickbait.
- Understand the psychology of fake news and how it manipulates emotions and appeals to ‘lazy thinking’.
- Analyse features of persuasive and emotive texts such as hyperbole and repetition.
- Understand where, why and how fake news is created.
- Conduct a visual analysis of fake websites and apps to help ensure they don’t fall for fake news, or spread it.
A fun interactive summary video, that can be used before or after viewing the videos, will test students’ ability to spot fake news.
This highly relevant and comprehensive series is a great cross-curriculum resource and addresses curriculum requirements in English, Digital Technologies and Civics and Citizenship.

Behind the Scenes of Respectful Intimate Relationships: A Teacher’s Guide
This outstanding series for senior level students explores challenging issues to do with pornography addiction, misogyny in pornography, pornography versus ‘reality’ and sharing intimate images. The four videos for students are supported by an excellent five-part professional development series that will help teachers to develop and deliver a series of lessons about these important topics.
As a cast and crew film a pirate-themed series about respectful relationships topics they raise issues to do with:
- The Internet and pornography
- Recognising and seeking help for pornography addiction and how to know when addictive behaviour is problematic
- Talking to trusted adults or helpers
- The impact of non-consensual sharing of intimate images, privacy, sex shaming, revenge porn and victim blaming
- How pornography is made for the ‘male gaze’
- Misogyny and stereotypes in pornography
- Consent and the importance of having open conversations with partners about sexual interests and needs.
The Teacher Guide videos feature conversations between Catherine Manning from SEED Workshops and AFL star and teacher Glenn Manton, where they deeply explore the ideas and issues raised in the drama-based videos for students.
Important ideas are explored and include:
- Creating and maintaining ‘safe spaces’ to discuss these ideas with students
- Gaining school administration and community support
- Practical tips and ideas for working with groups of students
