To think that stars ought to stick to shining rather than taking up shinning?

DD been awarded a shinning star for good behaviour. I have visions of this star being a good climber, shinning up drainpipes and then stealing diamond necklaces like gentleman burglar Raffles.

Is it unreasonable of me to raise an eyebrow when I see children who are learning the principles of spelling, to be having their learning undermined by educationalists who can't spot a really basic spelling error? Is this normal? Shouldn't teachers be able to spell basic words like this? Am I a very pushy parent?

Go in and COMPLAIN! That is terrible ...

maybe it is to regale her rugby socks ? (sorry - not helping)

stupid mistake - anyone should know that shining is with 1 n !

But yes, you are clearly a pushy parent. A PFB is she? Your DD?

No she is my second child, I thank you!

DS had a different teacher (one who could spell)

The same person is talking my DD through the function of commas at the moment. I dread to think...

I would not be happy about this either. Not sure what else to do other than go in and have word with the head about it.

Oh I wasn't going to complain about it or anything? What's the point? They'll just have me down as an hysterical parent. Just thought I'd vent on Mumsnet instead.

Actually, that's what the TES site should have - a parent's section for complaints which will never be made because they're not serious enough to make a fuss about.
