BBC Bitesize and Oak National Academy
New Educational Services from the BBC and DfE
From Monday, 20th April, the BBC started providing curriculum led activities and programming to complement the home learning being offered by schools.
Bitesize Daily, will deliver a tailored day of learning across BBC iPlayer, Red Button, BBC Bitesize website and app, BBC Four and BBC Sounds, with curriculum relevant offers. Together, this comprehensive package is aimed at minimising disruption to children’s education and providing rhythm and routine in these challenging times.
Navigating around the content will be simple for parents and children to follow as all content will be divided into age groups. From watching the 20 min programme on BBC iPlayer or BBC Red Button relevant to the child’s age, parents will be directed to the resources available that day for that child on BBC Bitesize online. BBC Bitesize online will home a new Maths and English lesson for every child every day with more subjects to follow. BBC Bitesize will be the one stop shop for all the educational resources whether that be podcasts, videos, quizzes and importantly lessons.
