From 20 April, in response to the coronavirus pandemic and school closures around the United Kingdom, teachers will be able to access regular daily lessons in English, maths and other core subjects, in an expanded version of the BBC Bitesize website and also in special programmes broadcast on BBC iPlayer and BBC Red Button.
Our aim with this new content is to help lighten the load for all teachers adapting to the home learning environment, and also to ensure that every child in the United Kingdom has access to education resources that support core aspects of their nation’s school curriculum.
In order to allow you to plan in advance for the home learning environment, our weekly schedules will be shared with teachers on BBC Teach, BBC Bitesize, on social media and via our newsletter, at least a week in advance. We hope this will help you with lesson planning and homework setting, and that you will feel happy and informed enough to be able to recommend us to parents too.
Bitesize Daily will run for 14 weeks and is designed to support teachers, parents and children learning at home.
