How does Tapestry work?
Staff have iPads in the classroom with the Tapestry app on them. Each member of staff has a unique login to enable them to access the pupils. When an adult observes your child making a step in their learning they write an observation and a photo/ video maybe attached.
How can parents/carers use Tapestry?
You can write a positive comment or give positive feedback about the learning taking place or add anything that you feel could add more insight into the observation. You can upload any photographs or short videos of a family day out, your child riding a bike, reading a book at home or a religious celebration. If you have any queries about logging in or your child's journal then you can book an appointment with Miss Archer or Miss Bennett.
