BBC to put lessons on TV during lockdown


The BBC is helping children keep up with their studies during the latest lockdown, by broadcasting lessons on BBC Two and CBBC, as well as online.

With schools now open only to children of key workers and vulnerable children, and most children now continuing their learning remotely from home, the BBC has announced it will show curriculum-based programmes on TV from Monday, 11 January.

The move comes amid concerns that low-income families may struggle to afford data packages for their children to take part in online learning.

The BBC offering will include three hours of primary school programming every weekday on CBBC from 9am, which will feature BBC Live Lessons and BBC Bitesize Daily, as well as other educational programming such as Our School, Celebrity Supply Teacher and much-loved titles such as Horrible Histories, Art Ninja and Operation Ouch.

BBC Two will cater for secondary students with programming to support the GCSE curriculum, with a least two hours of content each weekday.

And remember, you can always the episodes to view at a later date and time!
