Bedrock Vocabulary - English

Vocabulary learning at Irlam and Cadishead Academy:  Bedrock



At ICA, we use an online vocabulary and reading curriculum called Bedrock Vocabulary. Bedrock Vocabulary is a research-based curriculum that teaches students the language they need to succeed at school.   The digital vocabulary curriculum teaches through a series of multi-modal and interactive activities. The rigorous assessment feeds data back to the teacher, enabling us to easily monitor progress. Each fortnight, a scoreboard will be generated for each year group, charting the success of our learners.


What can you do to support at home?

It’s important that at least two Bedrock lessons are completed each week. The two lessons will guarantee the consistent exposure required for vocabulary learning. It will also ensure that reading is consistent too!

Parents can monitor their child’s progress through the parent dashboard. Please click HERE for more details.

Details of how to access this have been sent out to parents via email. 

The friendly team at Bedrock Learning can always help too. You can contact them at or 0203 325 9345. You can use your parent dashboard to check on progress and even see which words you can provide help with.
