20 April 2020

New online content has launched from the BBC and Oak Academy today. There is no expectation that students must use these sites, we are simply signposting them to you as an additional resource during school closure.

BBC Daily Lessons

From 20 April, you will be able to access regular daily lessons in English and Maths, as well as other core subjects, in an expanded version of the BBC Bitesize website and also on special programmes broadcast on BBC iPlayer and BBC Red Button.

BBC iPlayer and the Red Button service will host Bitesize Daily. These are six different 20 minute shows, each designed to target a specific age group, from ages five to 14, and for pupils throughout the UK. Experts and teachers will be involved, covering what should be learned that day for the different year groups and key stages. Maths, Science and English will be covered in dedicated programmes, and other subjects such as History, Geography, Music and Art will also be covered.

For older students, BBC Four is also joining forces with Red Button for evening programmes to support the GCSE and A Level curriculum.

In addition, BBC Sounds is also launching separate podcasts to support everyone learning at home. The daily shows, each around 10 minutes long, will link with content on Bitesize.

Oak Academy

To support the work of schools in delivering remote education, the Oak National Academy is also due to launch on Monday 20 April. This brand-new enterprise has been created by 40 teachers from some of the leading schools across England, backed by government grant funding. It will provide 180 video lessons each week, across a broad range of subjects from maths to art to languages, for every year group from Reception through to Year 10 https://www.thenational.academy
