The Narrative Journey
The first step in their journey is to learn 1500 storytelling words. This journey is designed to help them express themselves, whether they’re writing a story for school, or telling you about their day. Over six months, your child will learn words to describe the following:
taste & smell
The Narrative Journey (like all our journeys) is directly relevant to what children learn in school, and is designed to drive achievement across the curriculum.
Providing the building blocks of storytelling
Giving children the tools to express themselves more richly, and meet the increasing demands of the classroom.
Accelerating reading and writing age
Children learn new words in context, helping them to understand and retain them more efficiently and effectively.
Developing word consciousness
A vital skill for helping children notice and become curious about new words, so that they use them at school and at home.
Bringing words to life
Research shows that children learn easier and faster when information is presented visually.
What you get in the Narrative Journey
Tear out a daily worksheet, stick it on the wall, or complete it together at breakfast.
Word Pair Cards
Learn words in context, by seeing them alongside commonly used word pairs. The Narrative Journey also comes with instructions on turning the word pair cards into a game.
Binder and Inserts
Your child will build and own a collection of words for life, a month at a time. No more cramming, no more forgetting, no more 'here today, gone tomorrow'.
