Tapestry Online Learning Journal
In our Early Years Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception) children's learning is evidenced through their Tapestry Online Learning Journal. Parents are able to access this through https://tapestryjournal.com/ or by downloading the Tapestry app.
Once observations are approved by our teachers, Tapestry allows us to instantly share with parents/carers what the children have been learning in our setting. Parents/carers can view these observations and have the opportunity to add comments. We encourage parents/carers to share these Learning Journals with children at home as a point for discussion and to support links between home and school.
We highly value parental contributions to children’s Learning Journals. While we continually observe children in our setting there are many valuable achievements that happen at home too. By providing contributions from home, parents/carers are helping to give a greater understanding of their child’s stage of development. The evidence we have from home and at school contribute to assessing a child's EYFS Profile; a statutory requirement that will be reported at the end of the Reception year. If you are ever unsure about what would be a valuable contribution please do speak to our Nursery and Reception staff. Contributions are shared with children in school and we find that they love talking to us about photographs of themselves at home!
