Online Learning

Tapestry Weekly Challenges

The teachers in Nursery and Reception have been putting together weekly challenges for the children to complete, based around a story.

To access these you will need to log into your Tapestry account. If you are unsure of how to do this, please send an email to [email protected] where a member of staff will be able to give you the information you need.

You can then upload any work your children have been completing at home for their teachers to see!

All children in Nursery and Reception now have access to ‘NumBots’, a maths program to help practice facts. 

To login to this programme you will need to use the first three letters of your child’s first name and surname for the user name. The first three letters of their first name is the password. (All lowercase.)

For example: Samantha Smith

Username: samsmi

Password: sam

If you have trouble with this, you can use the above email address and a member of staff will be able to provide you with your login details.
Please note that these usernames and passwords will only work for our Nursery and Reception children.
