BBC Bitesize Daily
At Magna Academy, we have received information about the additional BBC Education content that is being created to support schools and parents over the coming months.
As you may have seen, the BBC made an announcement this morning outlining its plans to ensure that every child in the UK has the opportunity to continue to follow the appropriate core parts of their nation’s school curriculum in these challenging times. This expands upon the extensive Virtual School arrangements we have put in place for you.
This newly expanded BBC Education offer is called BBC Bitesize Daily and will see:
- Daily programmes to help guide parents and children through their learning day
- Famous faces Karim Zeroual, Oti Mabuse and Katie Thistleton lend their support alongside top quality teachers and organisations such as Royal Shakespeare Company, Premier League and Puffin Books.
- BBC Bitesize deliver daily online lessons for all age groups
- Content such as videos, quizzes, podcasts and articles to bring core subjects to life online at BBC Bitesize
The BBC's new content will launch on 20 April and will bring 14 weeks of educational programmes and lessons to every household in the country – whatever the age of the child.
Teachers will be the stars of this new content, as they are in the classroom every day, and always have been on BBC Bitesize. Teachers have helped design all the lesson plans and will be at the core of every broadcast. Schedules will be shared with schools ahead of time to help lesson planning and homework setting.
BBC Bitesize Daily will deliver a tailored day of learning across BBC iPlayer, Red Button, BBC Bitesize website and app, BBC Four and BBC Sounds, with curriculum-relevant offers across the UK. Together, this comprehensive package is aimed at minimising disruption to children’s education and providing rhythm and routine in these challenging times.
Here at Magna, we are delighted and excited to see this announcement today. Please watch our News section as the launch approaches.
