Are you pleased with it?
We got E's today and I'm really pleased with it, she is doing well academically and she is popular and has lots of friends and she also has 99.4% attendance record.
The General Comments say
"E has achieved a great deal of success in year 4. She is a hardworking, astute young girl who enjoys being challenged. When working in a class, E is always keen to read her work and clearly takes pride in what she produces. E is confident across the curriculum and tries hard in all lessons. Over the course of the year, there have times when E's temperament has got the better of her and she has retaliated by saying something before thinking about the consequences, however I can happily say that this is something that I have not witnessed in a long time and I hope E can continue this trend when moving up to year 5. E has made great progress this year and I sincerely hope that she continues in year 5. If she strives to push herself as she has done this year, I am confident that E will achieve more success next year".
There are bits in the report about her lack of concentration sometimes and that she gets distracted by her friends but in every report we've ever had that is always in there - it was the same in my reports every year but as long as she is doing well with her work, its not something I will lose sleep over.

I had C's, and I am SO proud.
His extra one to one classes are helping him so much. Was worried his learning difficulties would really hold him back, but he has been working so hard.
His SENCo put a special mention in, and said that if you compare his achievements to the other children, with no learning difficulties, he has actually achieved more than they have, but doesn't recieve the credit, as he is still below them.
He just needs to be more confiident, which is happening, the more he realises his abilities.

Ah that's lovely AK.

My E also got her report. I'm super pleased about it. The only negative comment we got was about her handwriting but I knew that anyway. There was also a bit about her moving down a group in maths to help her to cope which is fine too but I would rather the teacher mentioned it to me sooner.
Her general comments say:
"I have enjoyed having E in class this year. She is polite, helpful and reliable. She always has a smile on her face and grows in confidence every day. She had a little bit of a dip within numeracy but E took it in her stride and bounced back making some good progress. Always willing to help out and take responsibility has resulted in her taking on jobs around the class and leading warm up sessions in PE. I will miss E next year but am sure she will be as big an asset in Year 4 as she has been in Year 3."
She also has fab attendance at 96.57% with the only days she had off were when we were on holiday for BIL's wedding.

Great comments pebbles, its lovely to hear other people's perspective of your child.

Aw I bet your all really proud of your little ones!

I am so proud. Most of her previous reports say she has so much more potential if she applied herself fully so it was lovely to have such a positive report. I'm going to work with her over the holidays to keep up her momentum as she always has a dip that first term back. I'm determined not to get the same report I've had the past 3yrs at parents evening next year.

Those are lovely comments.
We got my daughter's back last week. She's done really well this year - Year One - and her report reflects this. I'm really pleased at how well she's worked at her reading in particular. At the start of the year she used to make a big fuss every time we asked her to try and read anything at all. Now she's happily reading and asking to read to us all the time. She likes her teacher for next year so I'm hoping she keeps it up.

Cedar- that's really good about her reading. Long may it continue.

Lovely to hear all these great reports for the MD children. We had ours today (reception class) and it was really good, one or two questions that I want to ask his teacher but more about how they assess and whether his weakness is a class weakness or just him, in light of the changes to the EYFS assessment this year. As I teach at the school, I suspect they're expecting me to ask!

Margot how has it changed then? Last year we got a book with a sheet which had all the early learning targets and they had circled everything as she achieved them. We didn't get a detailed assessment of her learning personality - for want of a better way of putting it.
Her Reception teacher gave every child a little notebook with comments about them at the start which was a lovely gift and must have taken her hours to write out.

Last year the Early learning goals were graded between 1 and 9 for each one, this year they are simply graded as emerging, expected or exceeding. The EYFS curriculum has changed so there is more to cram in for each one and it seems that only around 40% of children will reach expected in all ELGs due to this.
That's a lovely thing for the teacher to do though, how thoughtful.
12/07/2013 at 21:31
Oh I see. Doesn't sound good if only 40% are going to achieve the expected levels.
They do have a lovely teacher for their reception class. Shes so patient with them all and gets such enjoyment out of seeing them learn. She gives the children such a good start at school.

I got F's yesterday, she's in reception. It was a great report, she's excelling in reading which she has a passion for, she does need to concentrate more on Maths which she is good at but because she isn't so keen on it, she doesn't try as hard at it and has more potential. She's apparently very shy in class situations (hard to believe!) but a pleasure to teach.
