The BBC is to publish 14 weeks' worth of curriculum-related learning resources to support the education of the nation’s children during the coronavirus lockdown.

As the government closed schools in its fight against the spread of coronavirus, it also asked the BBC to work on a suite of national resources to support home education.

Launching on April 20, the resources will feature 14 weeks of curriculum-related learning for children aged five to 14 across all four nations of the UK. It includes:

BBC Bitesize Daily – as it will be called – will deliver its daily materials across BBC iPlayer, Red Button, BBC Bitesize website and app, BBC Four and BBC Sounds.

The materials will feature BBC presenters including Karim Zeroual, Oti Mabuse and Katie Thistleton as well as teachers and experts and input from organisations such as the Royal Shakespeare Company and Puffin Books.
