Miss B Primary Teacher

The children in year 2 really loved using DiaryZapp on a recent school trip. It was a fun interactive way for them to record and report on the day's events. It engaged even the most reluctant of writers and parents commented on how impressed they were with app and their children's work.

Both my children loved this

I love seeing my children’s masterpieces....

I have a 5 year old boy who uses it for mark making and drawing and an 8 year old daughter who often uses it to capture her day. They both love it and it’s lovely to watch my eldest help her brother to write in his journal.
