Tapestry - Online Learning Journal


What is Tapestry?

  • Online Learning Journal.

  • It is fully secure and only password holders can access the features.

  • Parents only access their own child’s Learning Journal.

  • Includes the statements the teachers assess against.

  • Parents can add their own comments from home.

  • Photos, videos and observations uploaded to Tapestry.

  • Access via app or website.

  • Opportunity to write back or input examples of what your child is doing outside the school day – weekend trips, exciting learning opportunities, trip to the shops etc.

  • There will be one or two observations a week and some whole class/group learning experiences.

  • During a week where your child is a Focus Child you will receive a higher number of observations.

  • First cycle of focus meetings beginning next week and you will receive your username and password.

Jamie really enjoyed building a train track today, and especially like the fact that it lived in its own tunnel.


He was the train driver, and his train was called Thomas which was very funny because Thomas is also his brother's name!

  • It increases the time spent interacting and playing with the children.

  • It gives us as practitioners more time to spend planning and creating exciting learning opportunities rather than printing, cutting, sticking etc into books.

  • It creates a two way communication between the EYFS team and the parents and carers.

  • It enables us to show you what your children really do at school which will give you opportunities to extend your child at home.


Why are we using Tapestry?

How it works.
