The word journeys

Ready to start exploring? We’ve paved the way to a richer vocabulary with a series of exhilarating journeys your child will love. No more cramming, no more memorising impossible word lists. Just the words they need, brought to life.

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:

Month 1


Month 2


Month 3

taste & smell

Month 4


Month 5


Month 6


The Benefits

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.
