This is a digital journal based on the new DfE ‘My Activity Passport’. This version includes the suggested activities for Reception Class. It enables teachers (and parents/carers ) to easily and creatively record, display and celebrate children taking part in the suggested activities. It also allows for additional/different activities to be included and for photos of children taking part in the activites at home with their families to be uploaded. Text can be added to annotate the photos. The digital journal is fully interactive meaning that photos and text can be quickly added and is so simple to fill that even the youngest children can add to the pages. There are links added to take users quickly and easily to selected pages when filling or viewing the passport. There is step-by-step guidance within the passport showing how additional or duplicate pages can be added in order to personalise it eg by using different types of backing paper pages. Adding or duplicating pages also means that a single passport can be used flexibly eg for an individual child, for a small group of children or even for a full class. You will be sent the passport as a digital Powerpoint file which will enables the links to work and is perfect for displaying your completed passports with photos and text to a wider audience such as in school assemblies. There is also a PDF version available in my shop which can be used on an iPad/tablet using an app such as GOODNOTES.
