I'm definitely not a regular on this board! Every week though, my child's teacher writes up the week's notices..

and every week it says "remember to wear trainers on Monday's and Wednesday's".

I have crossed out the apostrophes, but they're still there, week after week after week.

What do I do? NOthing? The teacher is lovely btw, the children all love him, and he's very good-humoured and energetic and has brilliant ideas. He disguises maths as bingo for example. My dc thinks she does no work at all!

So, it's a small issue that I should ignore, isn't it?

No you should tell him.
That is awful.

Think it's shocking that a teacher writes that. I would write an anonymous note or something. The whole class will pick up his bad habits otherwise.

Tell him, he needs to know. He'll get hung, drawn and quartered if ofsted see it!

She is only five, but the teachers move around every few years, so he could be teaching her again when she's 8.

If I have to see that mistake coming home every week for another forty weeks, I'll go insane!!

Anonymous note would have been a good idea, except now that I've sent the note back with the apostrophes scribbled out, I think he'd know who it was from! STILL wouldn't know where to put an apostrophe though grin

Bran, that is his Christmas present sorted! I was going to give him a lemon drizzle cake, very mumsnetty, but sod that!! He doesn't deserve a lemon drizzle cake.

All teachers should be teachers of correct English.

I also remember getting a letter home saying that the children were going to be "studying the art of Van Gough this week."

That'll be Damon's lesser-known younger brother, then? Aka Badly Spelt Boy?
