    you don't have to, I don't have that age group anymore but when I used to look after and 9-11 year old they had a book that they could write what they had done in the day (normally over hols) or I could write, just so the parents could see what we had been up to, but TBH it took up more time than it was worth

    My over 5s are all part timers - before and after school and very occasionally in the holidays.

    I take photos and put them in a memories book with a bit of writing but not much tbh... I also encourage them to contribute drawings or take photos of their own crafts etc.

    They like taking them away as memories.

    I dont do observations, but I take lots of photos and put them in a scrapbook. I especially take photos of things they have made so that parents can see them and for ofsed to prove we make things.

    love Elaine XXX
