|Stacey in Great Yarmouth after a Horse & Cart Ride|
Stacey, my little princess, has almost completed her year 3 class and to be honest, she's really relieved. For the last eleven months she's felt that her class teacher didn't like her and has constantly worried about going to school every day. At 8 years old, this was not something I was expecting her to have to deal with.
I encouraged her to continue being polite and work hard and provided kisses and cuddles when it all became a bit too much for her but yesterday she came home in floods of tears: the reports were here and she was dreading it.
Luckily for Stacey it seems that the teacher did notice that she was working hard and she said some lovely things about her. I'll share some parts with you:
- Stacey has put every effort possible into Literacy this year and this has been reflected in the progress she has made. Stacey's writing is developing day by day and it is now beginning to show maturity. If she continues with this I'm sure she will achieve great things! (I'd better watch out, there could be a new blogger about).
- Stacey is a quietly confident mathematician. She can explain her workings out when asked and it would be great to see her begin to do this with some eagerness to share her knowledge and skills.
- Stacey takes a leading role when researching the areas of science that we have studied this year.
- Stacey uses the computer and the programs we have used this year with confidence and with growing skill. (My parents can vouch for this as she's always teaching them new things).
- Stacey works well in pairs and small groups during topic work. She enjoys using the computer to conduct research.
- Stacey always puts in 100% effort in PE, whether she finds something easy or more difficult. She has some great ideas in dance and gymnastics which she applies confidently and with good extension. (Glad those dancing lessons are paying off).
- Stacey takes her time and is careful during art activities to ensure her finished product is neat and precise. She has enjoyed singing, learning the words quickly and accurately. (I wonder if she's ever sang an Erasure song for her teacher? She'd be astounded).
All of her effort and progress boxes were marked with an excellent or good mark which I thought was brilliant.
Stacey is always smiling and always ready for a chat! She works hard and strives to make the best progress she can. Keep this up Stacey and have fun in year 4!
So, imagine my elation when I read this. I was most definitely the proudest mummy in the world. I'm glad that her worries haven't seemed to have affected her school work.
Thanks for reading guys ... normal posts will resume tomorrow ;)
