Primary video lessons

Developed for use during school closures, these videos will also be useful for Covid recovery

Primary video lessons

These short videos were originally produced to provide primary school pupils with interactive lessons while they were learning at home during the first lockdown in 2020. Parents or teachers can now use them in school or at home, but it is important that, within each batch, they are set in the suggested order. Most lessons are between 15 to 20 minutes long, each ending with suggested follow-up tasks.

Teacher guides accompany the lessons, and give details of the features of teaching for mastery found in each batch. PowerPoints of the lessons are also available and include the same content as the video lessons, allowing teachers the flexibility to adapt and deliver the lessons themselves as part of their own teaching sequence.

Our feature article looks in depth at how various representations are used in two of the video lessons.
