How to use Bitesize Daily - Our new service to help you learn at home
Bitesize is changing to support you.
We’ll provide more support to students and their parents with a series of special daily broadcasts for both primary and secondary students, complementing a whole host of extra resources online.
From Monday to Friday, you’ll be able to watch Bitesize Daily on BBC Red Button from 9am to 11am, and again on BBC iPlayer.
Each 20-minute lesson will cover a different age group from ages five to 14, and will be brought to you by experts, teachers and some very familiar faces from the world of TV, sport and beyond.
As well as dedicated programmes covering Maths, Science and English, there will also be lessons featuring other subjects such as History, Geography, Music and Art.
Alongside the new Bitesize Daily lessons, there'll also be Teacher Talks - a brand new series offering helpful hints in tackling core concepts in Maths and English as well as extra content from BBC Teach including their Live Lessons series.
How you follow the lessons is completely up to you - you can join our broadcasts every day or catch up with a few in a row with every broadcast available to catch up via BBC iPlayer.
Learning with the daily broadcasts - in three easy steps:
That’s not all, though – we're adding even more to the BBC Bitesize website and app, with over 150 new lessons published every week.
The new online Bitesize Daily Lessons in Maths, English and other core subjects will cover every year group up to the age of 15. Created in collaboration with teachers and other education experts, they will be easy to navigate, concise and combine the best of Bitesize, BBC Teach and other education providers.
The lessons will include videos, educational games, articles and practice tests. We’ll also have advice for parents or guardians on how to teach anyone who is home-schooling as well as guides for pupils with special educational needs (SEN).
And if you want even more, BBC Sounds will also be releasing daily 10-minute podcasts aimed at primary and secondary pupils to support their learning at home.

If you’re a GCSE or A-Level student, BBC Four and the Red Button are linking up each evening to show curriculum-based programming.
Learners in Scotland can see Scottish Curriculum-specific content each day on the BBC Scotland television channel from 10am. Other than the core subjects content of English, Maths and Welsh, pupils in Wales will also have lessons which will reflect the Cwricwlwm Cymreig to help them advance their understanding of Wales.
Additional lessons with a Welsh angle will be available in English and Welsh on our online daily service as well. There will be English and Welsh content available on iPlayer too from 20 April. In Northern Ireland, the 3 O’Clock Club gets primary aged pupils involved in skills-based learning every week day.
All of our study schedules will be shared across our Facebook and Twitter accounts – and students can find weekly flashcards, quizzes and study and wellbeing tips on our Instagram account - where Year 10 pupils can also 'Take on the teacher' live every Thursday from 10.30am-12pm with Q&A sessions with teachers on English, Maths and Science as well as live quizzes.
