BBC Bitesize – The newly-expanded Bitesize website will offer daily lessons in all core subjects, tailored for every age group. The Bitesize website will offer a newly-created maths and English lesson for each year group every day, as well as a lesson in another curriculum topic.

There are also Bitesize Daily programmes – 20-minute shows each designed to target a specific age group – will be available on BBC iPlayer, on any device, and on TV via the Red Button.   They contain a maths, English and another subject focus in each episode.

NCETM Daily Lessons – A series of short videos have been produced to provide primary school pupils with interactive mathematic lessons while they are at home. Most lessons are 15 to 20 minutes long, each ending with suggested follow-up tasks. All lessons exemplify a Teaching for Mastery approach to maths. The current plan is for a new batch of five lessons to be added every week.

White Rose Home Learning – White Rose Maths Team has prepared a series of five maths lessons for each year group from Year 1-8. Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully. The worksheet does need to be printed though. The next few weeks will vary from the material on BBC Bitesize. Thereafter the materials on BBC and White Rose home learning will be the same.

Oak National Academy – The Oak National Academy, is an online learning tool, which has been created by teachers. You can search the schedule to see what lessons are on or search for a specific subject in your year group to work on. All the lessons are ordered so children learn along a clear plan. New lessons and resources will be provided each week.

Letters and Sounds online lesson – these will be available from Monday 27th. It is a YouTube channel and a video will be uploaded every day, Monday to Friday.

A guidance film for parents to explain the basics of Phonics and how parents can support their child is also available.
