Bedrock's impact in the classroom


Satisfy the EEF Recommendation to improve Literacy

Read more

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

Read more

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

Read more

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

Read more

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

Read more

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

Read more

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

Read more

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

Read more

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.
