Phonics Workshop (Part 2)


Another fantastic turn out to our most recent workshop... Thank you to all those friends and family members who we able to come along. Below is the Powerpoint in case you missed the workshop or would like to have access to the links we discussed. Our Maths workshop / stay and play will be coming soon in the Summer 2 term!

EYFS Tapestry



We are now using Tapestry online learning journals to record children’s progress and achievements. The Year R team will be collating a scrapbook of work samples across the year, but all of their daily observations, photographs and videos will be stored digitally in our new online learning journals!


We have made the decision to move to this secure online system for assessment and record-keeping as it will allow our assessments to be timely and in-depth whilst having the added benefit of excellent opportunities for familial involvement in the assessment process. Parent contributions toward and opinions about their child’s learning are invaluable to us and Tapestry will allow us to seamlessly incorporate parent voice into each child’s learning journal. In particular any home learning projects or home learning would be gratefully received in the form of photos or videos!


All children in Reception have their own account to which parents are given login details to enable them to view their learning journey at their convenience on a computer, tablet or SmartPhone. Parent accounts also allow parents the opportunity to share observations and photographs or videos of children’s at-home learning.

The following user guides are designed to support parents in their use of Tapestry at home:
