Bedrock Vocabulary

The online vocabulary curriculum for schools

Product Type
Age Range

Bedrock Vocabulary is a digital vocabulary curriculum that teaches essential Tier 2 words, root words and academic verbs. All new language is embedded in original stories and non-fiction texts so your students are regularly reading high-quality texts as well.

Research suggests that as a student progresses through school, they need to be adding at least 3,000 words to their vocabulary per year (Beck, McKeown & Kucan, 2002; Nagy,1980 & 1986) if they are to keep up with increasingly challenging curriculum texts. Bedrock helps teachers make this happen for every student in their school.

Bedrock is a self-marking classroom and homework solution that delivers assessment data right into your inbox. We provide teachers with invaluable data to track the vocabulary learning of each student and also immediately identify trends within the whole school cohort.

Bedrock is effective. We see large average gains across all groups of learners: primary students make an average 48% gain, disadvantaged learners 38% and the average gain across all learners is 32%.

With no additional input from teachers required, students access Bedrock independently; the language each student studies is appropriately challenging for the individual.

Bedrock is suitable for learners from 7-16 years old.
