Tapestry is an online learning journal used to record children’s learning throughout Nursery and Reception at Cherry Orchard and provides another invaluable link between school and home. You will be able to see pictures, videos and notes of your child’s learning, which you can like or add comments to. You will see three main types of observations on Tapestry:
- ‘Wow’ moments – independent achievements
- Group observations – play or activities taking place with a group of children
- Focus child observations – interactions and teaching during your child’s focus week
You can also add your own pictures and videos from home, which children are then encouraged to share with their friends at school.
Tapestry has a ‘memo’ feature, through which we will share information and messages; and a ‘documents’ feature, where you will be able to view a range of documents that we upload, including class newsletters.
In order to use Tapestry you must sign the online consent form which has been shared with you. Please speak to a member of the EYFS team if you have any questions about this or need support accessing or using Tapestry.
