At Radwinter CofE Primary School, we use Tapestry as our home learning platform for Reception, KS1 and KS2. Teachers use Tapestry to share information, homework tasks and learning in the classroom. KS2 children have a Child-Login and will be able upload examples of their learning to their account. Families will also be able to use Tapestry to share learning and activities or achievements outside of school. In Reception, each child has an online 'Learning Journey' where wow moments are recorded. As parents or carers, you have access to your child's Tapestry account. This enables you to view your child's Tapestry account at home. You are warmly encouraged to contribute to your child's Tapestry account.
