BBC Educational Services – Bitesize

The BBC Bitesize service is a web-based support service for kids. It had been developed to help school children pass examinations and also to aid they using their schooling. At first BBC Bitesize just appeared into the core UK areas of English, Science and Math. Design were selected from KS Three program, KS Two and the KS One, as well as the GCSE program.

The website uses revision guides, quizzes, flash games, class notes and celebrities who preform for the kids. Graphics and diagrams go into the essential facts which are needed to learn and help the class notes on the website. Besides this the BBC has a TV service and also sells a collection of publications. The KS One website looks at numeracy and literacy. The KS Two website looks at English, Math and Science. The KS Three website looks with additional detail merely at identical issues as KS Two. Including work on human biology, Quadratic Equations and Shakespeare.

The site’s GCSE section is more complex compared to other three. The compulsory areas of Science, Math and English therefore are linked to other and are looked at in great detail. There are also more links into the main broadcasting area which can be difficult to access if you’re based outside the UK. This site can show you how to access from the USA for example.

The Highers part of the website looks in more detail, but at identical areas. Additionally, there is revision contents on the topic which will be just open to study in Scottland. A section is also called Gaidhlig, that Gaelic pupils may examine with. Not every area on the program is comprised, for example Company Management or Economics.

The BBC Bitesize website (The Welsh Section)’s third section looks at four areas. All these are Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Math and Welsh. Additionally, there is an additional resource which can be found to enable a non-Welsh pupil to understand Welsh. It is so in the growth phases and should be noted the Welsh section is the most recent portion of the website.
