BBC Bitesize is a fun learning resource from the BBC, with oodles of things do for kids from age 3 upwards. The Live Lessons are particularly good, and they're all free. They've just launched a new TV channel and are releasing new podcasts, videos and lessons every day online. Areas covered include:
- Art & design
- Foreign languages
- Design & technology
Lessons on screen
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.
Listen and learn
In addition, BBC Sounds is also launching separate podcasts, aimed at either primary or secondary pupils, to support everyone learning at home. The daily shows, each around 10 minutes long, will link with content on Bitesize which supports education and also your other needs, in what is likely to be a confusing and worrying time for many young people as we continue to live in lockdown.
