To support children's wider learning, we recommend a visit to the BBC Daily lessons page and the Oak National Academy. Here you will find short, daily lessons with a recorded input video (prepared by specialist teachers) and an activity to accompany it. This will help children wider their general knowledge and develop a better understanding of history, geography and RE. This additional knowledge will help them become good all round learners.
