Learning and Growing Together

BBC Bitesize

From Monday 20th April, the BBC will be offering six 20-minute programmes on air daily on BBC iPlayer and red button. This learning will cover core subjects including Maths, English and Science, with guidance from experts and teachers from across the country.


The curriculum would be for Years 3 to Year 6. Education Secretary Gavin Williamson has highlighted the experience of many families, saying: "As a parent, I know encouraging children to learn at home is no easy task and I am delighted that the BBC has worked with experts and exceptional teachers to create this educational package."


The content will be divided into age groups and BBC Bitesize online will publish a new Maths and English lesson for every child every day with more subjects to follow. So be ready on Monday 20th April to tune in to the lessons and continue some of your online learning using BBC Bitesize.


Our SEN children will be receiving an email to give them more information on the BBC Bitesize and ensure that they access the ability appropriate programmes.
