This year, we have decided to trial Tapestry, an online learning journal which we will use as a platform for online learning. In the event of a lockdown or a child/class self-isolating work will be loaded onto this platform not the website.
How do I get onto the system?
Tapestry can be accessed online at: https://tapestryjournal.com/ once you have entered a password from the link which will be emailed to you. You will then be able to log on using your email and password. Tapestry is best accessed from your web browser such as chrome rather than the app to enable you to use all of its features.
Our advice for any parents wanting to home school during the school shut down is: Cuddle up together and read, read, read. Take turns reading. Read them your favourite story!
Do a puzzle, build a fort, bake, watch TV together, paint, get out the Lego and build together, set up a tent in your living room and camp out.
Look at photos of when you were a child. In other words, don't stress about them forgetting. Don't stress about home schooling them. Just spend time together.
Your children won't learn much if they're feeling stressed. Though this is a scary time, it could very well be a time they remember as the best time in their life.
Below are the links to some fantastic resources that you might like to share with your child.
We are looking forward to when life gets back to "normal" again.
