Supporting home learning during Covid-19 school closure

There are subject PDFs at the bottom of this page with main learning tasks for you to complete. These will be refreshed with a next set of work to cover 2 weeks from May 1st.

There are also two online sources of content launching for the summer term (from Monday 20 April) - BBC Bitesize and Oak National Academy. Details of all of these and how to access them are below.

KS2 - BBC Bitesize

From 20 April, you’ll 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 https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize

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.

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.
