Spring 2019 term Live Lesson schedule

BBC Teach Live Lessons are back in the new school year with a brand new series of free half-hour curriculum-based interactive webcasts for schools.

We're working with educational consultants to plan engaging and interactive programmes to support maths, literacy and science teaching in the classroom.

To inspire your pupils we’re joining forces with some of the BBC's biggest brands including Winterwatch and Radio 2's 500 Words competition.

Check out the full list of Live Lessons below – we'll add dates as they are confirmed.
