Demonstrating Bedrock's impact with data
Dashboards provide data in granular detail
See the words each student is learning that week, or the area of grammar that a learner is struggling with.
Data to create an aspirational, language-rich school
Access a range of reports brimming with vital data. These reports inform the language you might like to revisit in class.
Visualise the extent and impact of subject-specific vocabulary teaching and learning in your school
Mapper’s single and multi-subject reports clearly show which individuals have learned which words, informing classroom practice and interventions.
Promotes cross-curricular transparency through Bedrock Mapper
Teachers and learners can clearly see cross curriculum links and progression between different phases, years or key stages.
Bedrock's impact in the classroom
Satisfy the EEF Recommendation to improve Literacy
Mapper quickly and easily allows teachers in every subject to provide explicit vocabulary instruction to help students access and use academic language in every topic and subject.
Topics are matched to the National Curriculum
Our topics line up with the stage at which learners will likely encounter them in class. We explore the Vikings in Block 4 and the Solar System in Block 5, lining up with when they are explored at Key Stage 2.
Explicitly teach literacy knowledge that is crucial for success
We teach the most commonly occurring academic verbs, root words, text types and grammar that learners need to write with accuracy across the curriculum.
Teach essential elements of language comprehension directly
Proven to have a statistically significant impact on learners’ vocabulary, Bedrock improves elements of language and grammar that are crucial to reading comprehension and communication.
Bedrock's impact for your learners
Learners can progress at their own pace
The language, concepts and topics that learners study get progressively more challenging, decided by previous performance, to ensure continual development for learners.
Revisit prior knowledge and progressively build upon it
Bedrock’s reteaching algorithm ensures newly acquired knowledge is re-served to each learner, encouraging retrieval practice which is a crucial step in long term retention.
Learners can map the language they need across every subject
Mapper highlights where words appear in multiple subjects and how meaning is different in certain disciplines. For instance, ‘evaluate’ has a slightly different focus in Art, compared to in Maths.
Learners will read a wide range of fiction and non-fiction texts
The first stage of every lesson on Bedrock Vocabulary begins with an aspirational and challenging piece of reading. Human Narration helps to engage and support weaker readers.
