Back to school: Catch up and keep learning with BBC Bitesize

The new school year will see Bitesize continue to deliver a special service for pupils, teachers and parents.

Read on for information on how we can support children with their learning and wellbeing, whether they're in school, self-isolating at home or looking for extra learning content.


There are still brand new episodes of Bitesize Daily on CBBC and BBC iPlayer.

This brand new series for primary-aged children features fun, curriculum-focussed lessons in maths, English and wellbeing.

Every day will see the release of three 20-minute shows dedicated to a single subject; one show for each of the 5 to 7, 7 to 9 and 9 to 11 age groups.

The shows are led by well-known CBBC presenters, supported by primary school teachers who guide students through each day’s lessons.

This series also features a brand new character called CLOGS – a super smart robot with a keen grasp of the curriculum, but a lot to learn about life on planet Earth!

From understanding fractions and feelings, to telling the time and writing to persuade, the aim of the series is to provide teachers and students with an entertaining and engaging menu of subjects and topics from which to pick and choose as they require.


Bitesize is here to support you with study, homework and home learning throughout the Autumn term.

For primary pupils there is a new way of accessing resources to find help that is most relevant to a specific year group and subject. There are games to aid with learning across English, maths, science, history, geography and languages, as well as an interactive game to help young children starting primary school for the first time.

We’ve refreshed our England Key Stage 3 learner guides with over 100 new pages including step-by-step progression, interactive activities and video. There are new courses that give an intuitive guide to linked learning across subjects. We’ll be adding more new pages throughout the academic year.

For older secondary school students there are comprehensive study guides across subjects to assist with homework and revision for pupils in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland
