The Reading Journey is Just Imagine’s programme for supporting independent reading.
The Reading Journey core book selection comprises 200 great titles, specially chosen by Just Imagine consultants to support independent reading and to encourage reading for pleasure and wider reading.The packs are available as a full set of 200 books or a half set of 100 books and are ideal for use in classroom book corners or to supplement and update library collections.
A half pack will meet the needs of a single form entry school looking to totally refresh book corners. There is a spread of titles comprising books that will be suitable for children in lower junior classes, giving a perfect level of book choice per class. For two classes, we recommend the full pack or a total refresh.
If you are looking to supplement an existing collection, which is in reasonable order and up-to-date, then a half pack may be sufficient for two classes.
The Reading Journey books are also available in 20 individual themed packs, which might suit schools with a more limited budget or those wishing to add to their collections incrementally. The themed packs relate to specific locations in the Reading Journey App, but they can also be used independently as a trusted collection of curated high quality books.
NOTE: The Reading Journey App will be launched in September 2019 and will be free to use until at least 2020.
The app will initially available for Years 3 & 4. It will be rolled out to include Years 5 & 6 in the Autumn term and Years 1 & 2 in Spring 2020.
All schools signing up to the Reading Journey app are eligible to receive a monthly newsletter, dedicated to sharing new ideas for getting the most out of the app and supporting continued reading for pleasure. Of course, you can unsubscribe from this newsletter at any time.
