Podcast – BBC School Radio

bbc

BBC School Radio is the division of the BBC that provides audio resources for primary schools.

There’s so much material here that I haven’t had time to explore the entire site! So far just the Early Learning section has kept my two little ones busy. Specifically, the Listen and Play podcast, which includes songs, stories, nursery rhymes, and is perfect for preschoolers.

And there’s more stuff, including animated video clips, that teach English literature, history, and other subjects, available for older children too.

Under the English section, you can find audio adaptations of works by William Shakespeare, Beatrix Potter, Hans Christian Anderson, Aesop, and many others. Even Greek mythology!

Narrators include well-known British actors such as David Tennant, Jonathan Pryce, Derek Jacobi, Jim Broadbent, Miranda Richardson, and Penelope Wilton – to name a few.

And of course, being North American, I just love those droll British accents.

Please check this free resource out. I promise it’s a great find!
