From 20th April, you'll be able to access daily lessons in English, Maths and other core subjects. BBC iPlayer and the Red Button service will host Bitesize Daily. These are six different 20 minute shows, each designed to target a specific age group, from ages five to 14, and for pupils throughout the UK. Experts and teachers will be involved, covering what should be learned that day for the different year groups and key stages. Maths, Science and English will be covered in dedicated programmes, and other subjects such as History, Geography, Music and Art will also be covered. In addition, BBC Sounds is also launching separate podcasts, aimed at either primary or secondary pupils, to support everyone learning at home. The daily shows, each around 10 minutes long, will link with content on Bitesize which supports education and also your other needs, in what is likely to be a confusing and worrying time for many young people as we continue to live in lockdown. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons

Primary Science Remote Learning resources hub.
Members of the ASE Primary Science community have been working together (remotely!) to write lessons for primary-aged pupils which are designed to be directly accessible to children and parents at home. Available to both teachers and home educators, these curriculum-led resources are have been specifically designed to help deliver a structured series of topic-based primary science lessons in a home environment. Year 1 and 2’s topic is based on materials.
Each lesson can be accessed as a PowerPoint document, which can be downloaded for tailoring to your own lesson requirements or for saving as a pdf document to send out to pupils.. The key learning objectives are aligned to the National Curriculum for England but we have aimed to chose topics which are relevant to learners across the UK. There is guidance for parents, explanations of key concepts, suggested activities for pupils and examples of possible learning outcomes to make it easier for parents to support the learning.
For both Years 1 and 2 there is a single theme document, featuring four and five activities respectively, along with relevant curriculum-led key learning information. For Years 3-6 there are five or six separate sessions in each topic, with an overview document for teachers, showing the key learning and suggested activities. Each session is designed to be taught or accessed remotely as a single lesson. There is usually a ‘further activity’ which may be used for extension or for taking into a second lesson. https://www.ase.org.uk/ase-coronavirus-hub-primary-remote-learning-resources
