BBC New Learning Resources to Support Covid-19

We have been directed by the DFE to steer pupils & families to the unique resources being produced by staff across the UK, in conjunction with educational establishments, famous people and the BBC.

 The BBC are hosting a unique bank of resources between the BBC iplayer red button service and BBC Bitesize, please look at both on a daily basis.

Access will be available through your TV and online, an excellent bank of resources across many subject areas. We would encourage pupils to dip into all the resources.

 Oak National Academy

This is a Department for Education funded resource for parents & pupils across the UK.

Click the schedule and pick your year group. Follow the daily lesson structure, it will vary each day, try the pre-quiz, teacher video and summary quiz,  having some paper and a pen will be important. The Department for Education have steered all schools in the UK to this excellent resource which they have funded. These resources can be used on phones, tablets, laptops or a PC.
