For effort, progress and achievement.
Really? How?
It is Y2 and they don't even play any instruments yet.
They sing some songs which are very cool btw.
I think the whole class got that mark right grin

Does your DC sing in tune? Perhaps that is the benchmark?

Ds got level 3 for science and I have no idea how. He's Y2.

Well done

In tune? Well she sings like any other child. I haven't noticed any difference..but I noticed she is loving singing more and more lately. Thanks Frozen!

I am very intrigued too about how my child's new Art teacher (who isn't actually qualified Art teacher) marked his progress this year as satisfactory whilst the 'effort' box is ticked as being good? (By the way must mentioned that previous school reports show outstanding or excellent effort and progress in all areas of the curriculum including art).
My child mentioned this year many times that the Art teacher left in September and no new Art teacher was employed... they had only four hours of art with a supply teacher this year!

Maybe it's about hitting things in time to the music?

DD1 was quite bewildered by the comment in her report that she likes music lessons. she says they don't have them. it then went on to say about her being able to use musical instruments, she says they did it twice in the entire year. mind in PE it commented they did things they didn't as well and other bits are completely wrong or aren't about her....

My dd has had more than once now that she's talented at art, which always makes me smile because I'm sure her stick figures are much like everyone else's.

I reckon it's keeping the beat / singing in tune nicely.

cheekiness. Definitely exceeding all expectations.

I mean the word "cheeky" appears at least 6x in DS's report, & hopefully that's not average, right!? wink

In year 3, my ds's report specifically said that he didn't sing in tune but had great rhythm - I presume that this is all that they are looking for at this point.

Our reports were amazingly detailed for literacy/numeracy etc but the rest gave the impression teacher had ticked the boxes at random. Exceeding for art, which I'd agree with, but emerging for music, when dd can sing beautifully in tune, remember songs perfectly after one listen, and is overall v. musical indeed (dh and I are musicians so know of what we speak!). Cant take it seriously at all. And amongst other randomness , she is apparently 'meeting expectations' in RE. Wtf does that mean for a 6yo?!

Could be having natural pitch and tone. I never got how DD got really good music reports until she had 1 to 1 singing lessons. Turns out that she has perfect pitch, massive range and good tone and a bit very musical mum.
