After Bedrock has taken care of the marking, teachers are left with the aspects of explicit literacy teaching they love - the creativity of learners, showcased through our free-writing activities.

Perfect for the classroom and for homework, teachers and parents can watch learners embed more and more ambitious literary techniques into their writing with every activity.

Improving a learner’s literacy in preparation takes more than a definition - learners must be able to use literary skills correctly to demonstrate mastery, and this is what benefits learners’ lives beyond the classroom.

In order for learners to understand a literary concept fully, they have to be able to use it. Bedrock Learning’s free-writing activities keep the intent of literacy tuition where it matters - using literacy to benefit a learner’s life.

For Bedrock Grammar, free-writing goes beyond just using a skill; learners demonstrate in their own words why certain rules are in place.

When learners understand why they are being taught grammar, they are more motivated to use it - this means they demonstrate clearer, more effective communication and oracy in every subject.
