Seesaw and Tapestry
At Nevill Road Infants we are starting to use the online platforms ‘Seesaw and Tapestry’ as a way of connecting with our children at home, in order to fully appreciate all of the amazing learning that they are doing.
In EYFS they will be using Tapestry and for KS1 (Year 1 and Year 2) it will be Seesaw.
Please find attached useful documents and links for Seesaw and Tapestry.
Seesaw (http://seesaw.me), is a secure online journal where students can document and reflect on what they are learning in class. Your child will be able to add the things they work on (including photos, videos, worksheets, drawings and voice recordings) to their Seesaw journal. Seesaw also provides a facility to communicate between school and home.
Seesaw works on any device connected to the internet – but it works best on a mobile device that has a camera and microphone (iPad, tablet, phones etc.) as children are able to share their learning using a multimedia approach.

How do I access activities that have been set by my child's class teacher?
To access activities set please log into the Seesaw Class App and use your child's home learning code to access their journal. Once you have logged in please click on activties. This will display the activities that have been set. To complete the activity please click 'add a response'. The app doesn't notify you when an activity has been set so please check each day to see which activities have been set. If you have any questions, please let your child's class teacher know.
For more information please see the 'Seesaw FAQ' pdf booklet below.
Tapestry is an on-line system which allows teachers to create an individual Learning Journey for every child in EYFS. They can add comments, notes, photographs and videos of individual children and then link these to the Early Years Curriculum and the Characteristics of Effective Learning.
Tapestry works on any device connected to the internet but works best where the device has access to a web browser (Safari, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer). There is a Tapestry app too.
