English KS1/KS2: Full versions of our animated series

The majority of clips on BBC Teach/School Radio are short videos designed to offer flexibility for teachers using them in the classroom.

However, we appreciate that parents and carers at home might prefer longer versions for children to use. Below are full versions of some of our animated series for primary English.

Click the play icon to play each video (which can be viewed full-screen) or access the links below to each of the relevant series' pages, where accompanying resources can be found.
