She started reception in September 06 and was tearful and shy as she was the new girl (all the others were in Nursery at same school). She has come on in leaps and bounds, made friends and is a proper little socialite and the teacher said 'She is a pleasure to teach and I will miss her'

I am filling up, I am so proud of her.

<<Hugs DD to huge bosom, suffocating her and leaking milk all over>>

teary, postnatal, breastfeeding, etc.

No, not being unreasonable.

It's fab when they have a good report ... we toasted DD at dinner after hers & she was so chuffed with that (think it made her feel really grown up!)

LOVELY - you're right to be proud.

DH has promised her a treat - but we can't think of one suitable for a 5 yr old. A glass of champagne just doesn't seem right somehow.

Ah well done to mini GB She's a star

DD got a HSM t shirt as her treat after last week's report. Went down fab as she loves the film so much.

Gingerbear - congrats to your dd ... and as for a treat, we took ds to see Shrek 3 as a reward for an excellent report last week (end of nursery class) - he thought it was magic - and told everybody he knew that he'd been to the cinema for having an excellent report!

Charleybunnifrednubble - who are you? I love the namechange btw, don't understand it, but fab nontheless.

Well done to her that's great.

When ds got his report I was so bowled over I said he could be the king and made him a paper crown , he was a bit bemused by it all.

GB that's wonderful, bless yr dd.

WendyWeber Thu 19-Jul-07 13:36:56

Oh how lovely, GB - well done to your Gingercub

(Did you see one of the teachers here posted on another school reports thread that although some comments made are pretty much routine, "a pleasure to teach" is always totally sincere? Which is nice to know!)

hurray! so nice to hear good news on here!

Well done to your dd Gingerbear. It does make your eyes fill up doesn't it.



Can i just quietly boast (if that's possible) that my dd's headteacher said "she really is a star pupil". That made us very proud.

Wendy - I didn't see the comment about 'a pleasure to teach' always being sincere - but, as a teacher myself, I will definitely second it!

Other ones that ime are sincere are:

'A joy to have in the class'
'a thoroughly polite and pleasant child'

but also ...
'shows an unacceptable level of slothfulness' (and yes, I have used that one!)
