Bedrock

ImageslIn our school, we place a strong emphasis on fostering literacy skills. One method we've adopted to achieve this is by involving our students in a literacy enhancement program known as 'Bedrock Learning'. This dynamic online tool exposes students to a variety of fiction and non-fiction texts, introducing them to new vocabulary and concepts. It also guides them in applying these newfound skills across various contexts and assesses their retention of new words through interactive quizzes. Bedrock is part of the homework expectations for Years 5 and 6 only. 

You can access Bedrock via this link. 

This interactive tool allows children to read a variety of text online and complete various Literacy activities to demonstrate an understanding in the material that they are reading. Some of the activities include: matching words to definitions, fill in the blank with word banks, and selecting the appropriate words to complete various sentences.

Once your child has completed a lesson, Bedrock automatically populates a percentage of what your child has achieved. The children need to get 60% or higher in order to proceed to the next lesson. If your child doesn’t achieve this, they will be locked out for a specific time, after which they will be allowed to attempt the lesson again.

The purpose of Bedrock is to introduce children to a wide variety of terminology that they can use across all subject areas and help students develop confidence in exploring the meaning of new and challenging words. In order for your child to get the most out of Bedrock, they complete one Bedrock lesson in their English curriculum time and then are encouraged to spend as much time as they can on Bedrock at home.

Benefits of Bedrock Vocabulary

  • Fully accessible program that your child can use at school, on their mobile phones, on their tablets and of course at home.
  • Gives instant results to your child about how they performed and how much progress they are making.
  • Keeps track of new vocabulary words that the children have learned and the vocabulary words that the child found difficult. This allows English teachers to have the children work with the difficult vocabulary words but also challenge your child to explore and use the new vocabulary words they learned through their writing.
  • Rewards program launched to get children excited about more involved with using Bedrock

How Can You Help?

  • Parents can log onto Bedrock and see the progress your child is making.
  • Have conversations at home with your child after they have completed a lesson about the difficult words and the new words that they encountered.
  • For the words your child have a difficult time with look up the meaning of the words and help to explain it in a different way/context.
  • Help your child keep track of their points that they earn to encourage about receiving rewards for their hard work.
