It an A5 book, front page is telling us what sort of thing to write in it, why its good for the children, that the book needs to be back on monday etc etc etc.
No more then 3-4 paragraphs.

How many mistakes do you think there are??

( BTW I know this is pot caling the kettle black coming form me but....)

well, anyway...there are 23.

Half of which are spelling mistakes.

resource spelt with 2 s, nurseries instead of an 's at the end(it's not a pural either, its talking about the Nursery's diary), involvment with only 1 v.

Comma and fullstops missing and placed wrong. words completely missing...

I won't list them all but its really bad, isn't it?

<Hamster settles back and waits for someone to blame the TA>

I had a letter from my LEA today which had his's in it, that is a new one!

I just think it shows a lack of regard rather than a lack of literacy? <hopeful>

I normally come on to defend casual typos - but there is NO EXCUSE for sending out a document with 23 mistakes. Or indeed any mistakes at all. Are you going to point it out to them?

yes it is bad and yes it matters but what do you do? My dd's old school had a _parent's noticeboard_, i always wondered which parent it was for and where mine was!

why i wonder also won't this go bold or underlined? even the machinery is against me!

The best one DS had when he was at nursery was a letter detailing the aims of the nursery, one of which was:

"To learn the children to respect their piers"

Is this something that gets passed around the parents? What is a school diary?

yogabird - you have to do each word

ladytophamhatt Fri 28-Mar-08 21:15:15

It is a lovely lovely nursery, really lovely. The ladies are all just like you'd wantthem to be....

Obviously none of them are good at grammer though.

Someone has already circled all the mistakes. Someone being another parent which I think is abit off TBH.

JingleyJen Fri 28-Mar-08 21:15:42

really scarey thinking these people are teaching our children!

ladytophamhatt Fri 28-Mar-08 21:19:30

If I;d had teh diary first I would have pointed out the mistakes so that they can correct them and re-print the page.

The diary is shown on monday to the children. I'm sure they don't read their own front page every time so they've probably missed it and are still none the wiser.

constancereader Fri 28-Mar-08 21:20:37

They might think it was you who circled the mistakes.

yogabird Fri 28-Mar-08 21:38:16

thanks hamster (if I may abbreviate) sorry to be so personal, trying it right**now but...nothing;s happening!

hippipotami Fri 28-Mar-08 21:41:35

A note in my dd's reading diary (from her teacher, I recognize the handwriting) read ....their was no clues....

I am so tempted to correct to there were, but I won't, for fear of upsetting the lovely teacher.

ladytophamhatt Fri 28-Mar-08 21:46:24

I will point them out on monday, just because I think its embarrassing for them to sent it home again.

wheresthehamster Fri 28-Mar-08 21:57:54

Right - now listen Yogabird

Repeat after me....

'to learn the children to respect their piers' ??
