Tapestry Phrases


Recommended Posts

I think this has been asked for before and I agree it is something that would be useful but if I remember correctly Tapestry are not keen as the system could then be used as a 'tick sheet' which is not the intention - I may be wrong and hopefully someone will correct me but I think that is the reason.

You can see the Development Matters statements that you have attached to observations- from your snapshots tab. But you're right, we really don't recommend you rely on the statements as an assessment framework. They are only examples of the kinds of knowledge, skills and behaviour that children might exhibit. They are not learning targets. :1b

The next steps ideas are taken from across all the columns in Development Matters, not just the age band statements. We feel this gives the opportunity to deliver a broader experience for the children rather than just following DM statements as a list 'to be completed'

Thank you that makes sense! We find it useful to look at as more of an evaluation of what we provide in the sense that if lots of children don't have a particular phrase then maybe we don't offer enough opportunities for them to achieve that. I agree that they aren't a tick list so I can see why you wouldn't list them from that point of view.

I print off a summative assessment for Year cohorts as boys/girls at the end of the half term and then highlighting every aspect for each child that showed progress from the previous half terms, this very quickly shows gaps e.g last time our oldest few boys showed no progress in being imaginative so we are targeting this by enhancing provision to try and engage that group, it takes about 10 mins to run through 50+ chn and 5 mins to see which aspects we need to focus on :-)
