What is it?
Perfect for re-engaging readers on their return to school, The Reading Journey is a system for recording children’s volitional reading.

With chapter samplers embedded in the app, children can browse at home and make book selections.
The Reading Journey is a system for supporting and recording children’s volitional reading, providing information about children’s reading choices that helps teachers make informed judgements about recommendations and positive intervention.
From the dashboard teachers can see at a glance children’s current reading and reading histories. They can identify the most popular reads and filter for different groups of children. The app enables children to create a record of their reading by using a personalised bookshelf.
Even books that are not part of The Reading Journey selections can be added to the bookshelf to provide a complete record of pupils’ reading.
In the app children will discover over 200 books with samplers in 20 themed locations. There are 30 meaningful challenges to select from. Once completed, these are sent digitally to the teacher for verification.
In addition, children can record their responses using sound, image or text.
When used with high-quality book talk and sharing sessions, The Reading Journey is a powerful tool for developing a community of readers and encouraging reading for pleasure. Subscribers to The Reading Journey receive a half-termly newsletter packed with practical ideas for making the most of the resource.
Curated book packs are available as starter packs and annual subscriptions, with new titles added each term to keep the collections refreshed and interest levels high.
