14 The Learning JournalLearning Journals are used to record the achievements and developments that each child makes within their first year at school. A learning journal will include photos and observations made by all staff working within the classroom. These observations are then used to make individual assessments, as well as to inform next step planning .
15 TapestryFrom September, we will be introducing our new online learning journals! We have decided to create individual ‘learning journals’ for your child through a piece of educational software called ‘Tapestry’. By logging on with a secure username and password you will be able to view all of your children’s observations, photographs and even video from their time in Reception.
