ds just had glowing P2 report card <very proud mum>
Lanuages "....consistantly reads with fluency and expression......" Maths "....calculations are sound and he is a consistant worker.....works with great enthusiam....." PE "...consistently gives his best...." Art, Drama "...gives his best at all times....."
Then teachers additional comments are positive, but end with "...there are some occasions when ds doesn't give his best and I would like to see a more consistant approach...."
I need to fill in parents comments now, how about -
"I am really pleased with ds's report card this year. We have discussed with him his inconsistant consistancy and he will try harder to give his best where you think he is already giving it"
Seriously, I'm I missing something subtle the teacher is trying to say? Would you comment on this or let it slide?
