My Activity Passport
The ‘My Activity Passport’ list is part of the Education Secretary’s vision for every child to have the opportunity to enjoy new and varied experiences, no matter their background - comprising of key areas: drive and tenacity; sticking at the task at hand; understanding how to work towards long term goals when reward might be a long way off in the future; and being able to pick yourself up and bounce back from life’s challenges.
These activities will inspire children’s ability to problem-solve, provide opportunities to see or visit new places and develop wide interests in new subjects. The activities are designed to be accessible so that every child and family can get involved and include milestones for each primary school year group. Tasks that schools and families can set children include:
- painting a self portrait
- posting a letter
- looking at the stars on a clear night
- playing a board game
- writing and performing a poem
- going hiking
- planning and cooking a meal
- interviewing someone
Among the list of activities will be opportunities for children to engage in social action that helps them make positive changes for themselves and others.
