and those with well behaved, competent and academically successful children, just for today please, post elsewhere!
From dd's report:
x can concentrate for long periods of time - on topics that she is interested in
x has the potential to do very well in school . . .

Hmmmm Dd is lively & confident young lady...always keen to join in group discussions...HOWEVER...she needs to realise when it is appropriate to share her thoughts and ideas......

Can't work out whether she talks to too bossy...has far fetched ideas ....or just doesn;t give anyone else an opportunity...I suppose it's all of these!

"DS1 displays a mature and sensible attitude and is usually polite towards adults but can sometimes forget that he isn't right and appear rude."

Usually polite towards adults? More than we get at home....

Oh yes, I've had:

"Ds2 needs to learn that life isn't all about having fun".

"can be a bit of a daydreamer and does sometimes have difficulty maintaining her concentration, especially when sat on the carpet; this can be partly resolved by ensuring that x isn't sat near anyone that may be distracting" - said distracting child has same thing written in their report!

"x has her own time scale and is very particular about how she is going to do things, I have tried to speed her up but have realised that for x some things just take time - I am sure she will speed up eventually"! - could that make dd sound any 'slower'! I know that's not how it was meant to come out, but it does sound it doesn't it!!

"x is a confident talker and uses language in a variety of ways" - ie she talks constantly!

T likes to get her point across and will repeat this until she is verbally acknowledged. This may come across as rude to those that dont know her well.

Good job I agree with her

"your daughter is just lovely, oh I just love her, she wonderful. I can talk to her and have a better conversation than I have with most adults. Obviously I'm not meant to say that."

Hands me report card saying:
"DD needs to interact more with the other children and develop class coping mechanisms."

DD is 5 and says she prefers her teacher as the other children are a bit babyish...

I just love this thread. I will probably add to it when i get my dd report. Although i did get a comment on a work appraisal thay i couldn't quite work out.
x enquires deeply into matters and does not accept things at face value.

ds's housemaster gave the reference for college application, summarising

  • is the laziest boy i have ever encountered and should you offer him a place you shall no doubt regret it!

    i was so shocked and thought hm was the nastiest most vindictive w*** ever...

    one year on i understand how he must have suffered as housemaster to my lazy son for 3 years

Lucy has opinions on all subjects and is happy to share them.

Lucy is a talented singer and dancer and doesn't let the constraints of a maths lesson stop her from sharing her talents with the class.

The highlight of the year for * was the class trip to [insert pizza restaurant of your choice}
