  • Why do we need DB Primary?

    In order to ensure that learning is continued, irrespective of lockdown and self-isolation, Green Dragon Primary School has invested in this online learning platform. DB Primary offers high quality remote learning which children access through their own username and password. It is an excellent platform for teachers to plan a range of learning activities, which can be submitted by the child, marked by the class teacher with feedback and this can all be done in the event of a local or national lockdown.

  • Who to contact if you need help or support

    If your child forgets their login details or you need support, please contact a member of their class using their year group email:

    Year 1 - hydra@greendragon.hounslow.sch.uk

Online learning platform - Early Years

  • What is Tapestry ?

    Tapestry is a secure online Learning Journal to record photos, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, to build up a record of a child’s experiences during their time with us. This system allows us to work with parents and carers to share information and record the children’s play and learning in and outside of the classroom.

    We really hope that our parents enjoy using Tapestry and that it helps keep them feeling informed about their child’s learning.  If parents have any questions or problems using Tapestry then they can let Miss Malik our EYFS Lead know.

  • What does it provide ?

    Tapestry provides each individual child with their own Learning Journal held online. Parents and carers are given their own log-in using their email and password (which is pre-set by us but can be changed by you to make it more secure). All our staff are given a secure log-in. They can then upload observations, photos or videos; recording children’s achievements and assessing their learning in reference to the EYFS curriculum.

    Parents can change their settings so that an email is then automatically generated informing them when an observation has been added so they can have a look and add any comments of their own.
