BBC Bitesize Daily

BBC Education’s response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Bitesize Daily, launches this Monday April 20th to support parents and children learning at home over the next 14 weeks. 

BBC Bitesize Daily programmes will be available on any TV via the Red Button and online on any device on BBC iPlayer with teachers, experts and famous faces covering what each age group should be learning that day. 

Bitesize Daily Lessons will offer a tailored learning experience for every age group between Years 1 and 10, drawing in the best of the existing BBC Bitesize content with activities and input from the best of the broader education industry, who have generously thrown their weight behind the work. These will be available via the BBC Bitesize website and will deliver a newly created Maths and English lesson every day, as well as a lesson in another curriculum topic, for each year group.  

The aim with this new content is to ensure that every child in the UK has access to content following the core parts of their nation’s school curriculum in these challenging times.

All lesson plans have been devised by teachers. And there’s a host of well-known faces on board to host the programmes including Karim Zeroual and Katie Thistleton, plus specialist subject support on Maths from Bobby Seagull and Rachel Riley, and on English from Matt Barton

Every week there will be an age appropriate ‘Book Club’ for young learners with books being read in week one by Strictly Come Dancing stars Oti Mabuse and Diane Buswell, comedian Russell Kane and England rugby player Maro Itoje
