Tapestry learning journal is a record of each child’s learning and shows snapshots of children’s achievements and progress in relation to the EYFS.
Tapestry allows you to see what your child has been doing at a time that is convenient for you and, if you view it with your child, it will encourage them to talk about their day at nursery. You can also make comments and tell us what you have noticed your child doing at home. Your contributions are crucial as the assessment of a child’s ability is very much collaboration between home and school.
Tapestry also allows relatives who do not live with the child to see what they’ve been up to, and we can use it to ensure the children are making the expected progress. The website is username and password protected.
