It was really fantastic to watch them really come alive with keywords around healthcare and sanitation in the Industrial Revolution - words that our GCSE students struggle with - for them to come in and actually tell us more than our GCSE students knew [was fantastic].

St Anselm's Catholic School, located in Canterbury, has fully embedded Bedrock Learning into their humanities subjects as part of their whole school literacy solution. Feedback from both teachers and learners has demonstrated the incredible impact that explicit teaching of tier 3 vocabulary can have across the whole school.

The explicit vocabulary instruction alongside multi-modal and repeated exposure to new words that Bedrock provides has been revolutionary for learners in History and Geography in taking a word and unlocking the concept behind it, before they arrive in the lesson.

We use Bedrock now as a great pre-learning tool. The Mapper words are fantastic. We haven't stopped using keywords, we've continued to use them, but now they're embedded and students are able to see that word and they already know about it, they already feel comfortable with it. They walk into your lesson and tell you what they already know.
