Parents  - you can help too

Reading and vocabulary are the bedrock of learning, so please do make sure your son knows about the prizes and is logging on to Bedrock regularly.

Bedrock is a student-friendly online literacy platform that helps students learn new vocabulary while reading interesting content about everything from the Vikings to space travel. It’s very student friendly, with each boy being introduced to new words that are at exactly the right level for them.

Parents can log on to Bedrock too, to check on their son’s progress. If you need help logging in to the parent area of Bedrock simply email Ms George on

MaxMax wins £10 Bedrock prize

Max in 8O1 has already won a £10 Amazon voucher for his consistent use of Bedrock. “I do some before bed and before school too, and while I’m doing it I listen to music,” he says.

“I read over the extract a few times before answering the questions and I’m definitely using new words in my work at school. For example, I came across the word ‘devious’ on Bedrock,  which I didn’t know before. This morning I was explaining it to one of my friends in class.”

Boosting vocabulary

“We have some incredible results for March and it is clear that as a school we are all striving to achieve the very best of our students when it comes to improving their reading and expanding their vocabulary,” said Ms George. “This month, HBAED gained some of the best overall results we have had as a Federation!”

Students can access Bedrock from home but are also using it in lessons at school too. “It’s a great platform to boost the boys’ vocabulary, writing skills and imagination too, as they read lots of different extracts. They’re learning new words and trying to incorporate them.”

Promoting and boosting literacy is at the heart of all learning, so Bedrock is really important. “You can see the progress students are making,” says Ms George “When we’re studying a new text one of the boys might say ‘we learned that word in Bedrock’. And the student with the highest score in Bedrock went on to write the best descriptive piece in class, so students can see it makes a difference.”

To stand a chance of winning a £10 voucher simply log in to Bedrock Learning and gain 120 points before the end of the half term.
