Oak National Academy - online learning from the Government
Click on the link below to access daily lessons from the governments new online classroom. We will continue to put work onto each year groups page regulary also.
Oak National Academy is a new collection of high-quality lessons and online resources. Backed by the Government, it has been created in response to the coronavirus lockdown.
Our online classroom offers free access to great teachers, delivering video lessons, quizzes and worksheets. Available for both primary and secondary levels, it covers a range of subjects. All of the lessons are ordered so your child can learn along a clear plan. We’ll provide new lessons and resources each week.
Follow your school’s advice. They may have their own plans already in place. They’ll be free to suggest if and how this online classroom is used, perhaps alongside any existing work.
Oak National Academy will fit alongside other resources such as BBC Bitesize to offer a structure for the day for children until schools fully reopen.
Oak National Academy was built at speed; at present our resources are for pupils who usually access their schools’ curriculum in mainstream education, from reception through to year 10, without significant support or adaptation. We’re currently working on providing support for teachers working with pupils with additional needs, and teachers based in specialist settings. Next week we hope to launch materials for pupils not able to access all aspects of our current offer.
How it works
Schools are free to decide how their pupils make use of these lessons and resources, to fit in with current lesson plans and complement existing work.
Each Oak National Academy lesson will be an hour long, with elements such as a quiz, a video explanation from the teacher and a worksheet.
