    Hello all, I am leading humanities across KS1 and KS2 and was wondering if there was another way for children to display their learning other than in books. I was thinking folders but not sure.
    Any ideas?

    I have previously done A4 zigzag books which we made by sticking two different colours of nice card together. They contained everything from artwork, literacy, design project ideas, history, geography, sometimes tucked inside card pockets stuck on the page, sometimes directly stuck on. They included a title page and a contents page which the children added to as we added to the books.

    In my previous school we would collect evidence for more practical lessons by taking photographs and blogging about it. Every class had a blog and it was easy enough to tag the topic posts so that they were all collected together. It would take some time to set up but I always enjoyed blogging about what we'd done as a class. The kids liked it too.

    Have you looked at 'floor books'. We are going to start doing this for our RE lessons:
    Doesn't have to be an actual book though - could just be an A2 / A1 sheet of paper. If you were desperate for stuff in individual books you could always take a photo and stick it in.
    Everybody gets to contribute and create something together in the lesson.
    Hope the photo worked. If it didn't just google floor books.

    • Classic "art folder" - massive sheet of sugar paper folded and loosely stapled
    • Deffo blogs, great idea, esp. if your school is "open" and willing to share with parents/on school website
