Alongside the work we have set as a school, if you have internet access and your child has the use of a tablet or laptop they might like to join in with the online lessons on offer at the Oak National Academy or BBC Bitesize. Follow the links below to try these out.
BBC Bitesize is a free online study support resource designed to help with learning, revision and homework!
Bitesize provides support for learners aged 5 to 16+ across a wide range of school subjects. It also supports children and young people’s wellbeing and career choices. From April 20th Bitesize will be publishing daily lessons to help students across the UK with home schooling.
Bitesize guides are written by teachers and subject experts and are mapped to follow the curricula of the UK.
To support the hard work of schools in delivering remote education, the Oak National Academy launched on Monday 20 April. This brand-new enterprise has been created by 40 teachers from some of the leading schools across England, backed by government grant funding. It will provide 180 video lessons each week, across a broad range of subjects from maths to art to languages, for every year group from Reception through to Year 10.
