Lockdown Learning: How BBC Bitesize can help you learn on TV and online in 2021
As a third national lockdown is under way, the BBC is bringing hundreds of educational resources together to help with home-schooling.
Whether on TV, online or on social media, we have lots of brilliant content to help you learn at home.
Starting on Monday 11 January, CBBC will broadcast three hours of primary school programmes from 9am every weekday. They will include BBC Bitesize Daily, as well as other much-loved shows with an educational twist, such as Our School, Celebrity Supply Teacher, Horrible Histories and more.
Secondary students will be able to watch two hours of programmes supporting the curriculum on BBC Two every weekday. These will be complemented by drama adaptations, as well as relevant BBC science, history and factual programmes.
Bitesize Daily Primary and Secondary will also air every day on BBC Red Button, and episodes will be available on demand on BBC iPlayer.
Of course, BBC Bitesize is here with lots of easy-to-follow lessons for home learning, as well as collections of resources for all ages.

They can also find support and advice on their well-being on Bitesize Support.
On social media
Bitesize’s social media channels will also be there to help. Our Facebook and Twitter accounts focus on parents and teachers, where information including TV schedules will be shared. There will also be articles for parents on supporting their kids learning from home.
Teenage students can still enjoy our Instagram and TikTok platforms, where explainers, support content and of course lighter relief in the form of memes will be at hand.
