Supporting Children at Home

Tapestry 

In our EYFS environment we use an online journal called Tapestry. Tapestry is an 'easy-to-use online learning journal that helps educators and parents record, track and celebrate children's progress in early years education.'

For more information click on the following link: https://tapestry.info/ 

Following the success of Tapestry and feedback from a recent parent/carer questionnaire, we have launched a similar journal, Seesaw, to the rest of the school. 

"It would be great for ‘tapestry’ to continue into Year 1 when my child moves up from Reception" - KS1 parent.

"For my child in Reception I have found the Tapestry online journal fantastic!" - KS1 parent.

"I would definitely support the idea for my eldest too. I find it a great way to be involved in their learning. Tapestry is really good and should be used in all year groups. It’s so nice to see what they have been doing in photos and get homework tasks online" KS1/KS2 parent.

"I’d love for tapestry or a similar app to be present to continue throughout the years. It’s a great, discreet means of contact between school and parent. I’d be upset to see such a successful thing not continue until their older years" - Year R parent. 

Seesaw

In Years 1-6 we use Seesaw, a student driven digital portfolio. Seesaw empowers students to independently document their learning and provides parents/carers a window into their child's classroom and learning.
