Children: How to view and make observations


Recommended Posts


I'm going to show you how you can write observations on Tapestry. Observations are a way of sharing what you have been doing at school or at home with your teachers and family.

Make sure you are logged into Tapestry first. Click here for help with logging in at school and click here for logging in at home.

When you log into Tapestry you will start on the Observations page. This has a list of different observations made by you and your teacher and family.

If you get lost you can go back here by clicking the Observations button at the top of the screen next to your name. This has a picture of an eye and in the picture below it's being pointed at by the red number 1 arrow.

You can open any observation by clicking on it's title or the Open button, which you can see pointed out by the number 2 arrows.




You'll then be able to see the title of the observation. You can see this pointed out by number 1 in the picture below, the title of this observation is Abby is reading "The Koala Who Could" this week (27/7/2020).

You can also see any pictures or videos attached, like the Koala pointed out by number 2.

You can like the observation by clicking the Like button, which is pointed out by number 3.




If you scroll down you will be able to see what your teacher has written in the Notes box (pointed out by 1) and any comments (pointed out by 2). These could be written by your teachers or your family.

If you would like to add a comment, write into the comments box (pointed out by 3), then click  Save Comment (pointed out by 4).




Once you are done you can scroll back to the top and click Back to list (shown by 1) to go back to the main Observations page, or Next (shown by 2) to see the next observation.




If you want to write your own observation click the Add Observation button from the main Observations page.




Firstly you need to write a title for your observation (shown by 1). Make sure to do this as you can't save your observation without adding a title! 

You can then add the Notes you want to write (2) and pictures, videos or other documents from your computer (3). The observation Notes are where you can write what you have done.

Once you're done, click the Save button at the bottom right (4). If you change your mind you can click Cancel (5) to go back to the main Observations page without saving.




If you have any trouble, or don't have the option to add an observation, ask your teacher for help.
