BBC Cymru Wales to provide further educational support for pupils across Wales during lockdown


From today there will be an extensive service to reflect the needs of Wales’s curriculum as well as learning through the medium of Welsh.

Primary school pupils will be able to access Welsh and Mathematics online lessons from BBC Bitesize. All of the lessons are bilingual to support non-Welsh speaking parents and carers.

In addition to this, the range of other subjects on offer to primary school pupils also includes History, Geography and Health and Wellbeing. Teachers will be able to use these resources to prepare lesson plans or pupils can turn to them in order to learn independently at home.

For 11-14 year olds, Bitesize has collections of videos, graphics and quizzes to use at home or to support teachers while they are learning from a distance. Subjects include Welsh, Mathematics, Geography, History, Health and Well-being, Music, Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

Students and teachers can access the content on by clicking on 'Start a lesson'. 


GCSE students (14-16 years old) are also being offered support with access to GCSE Bitesize notes, videos, tests and more that follow the WJEC exam board specification. All GCSE content is available on 

BBC Bitesize daily content and educational short packs are also available on BBC iPlayer.

BBC Cymru Wales Director Rhodri Talfan Davies says: “It's a very difficult time for pupils, parents and teachers so we are delighted that BBC Cymru Wales is once again able to support learners in Wales with a specially-developed package of support.”

“This multi-platform educational bundle, which fits into the biggest education offer in the BBC’s history, will ensure all children in Wales can access curriculum-based learning.”
