We went to Sophie’s parents evening just now. All very positive and quite lovely. She’s recently been added to the Gifted and Talented register for Mathematics – so it’s no surprise that she likes that subject most of all. Earlier today, the teacher asked all the pupils to fill out a short survey, to canvas their opinion of how they think it’s all going. She said she “adored” maths, but when it came to French, she said “It isn’t my favourite subject.” Very tactful.
When one of our kids done good at parents evening, innit, we reward them with a Chinese Takeaway token to be cashed in at some point in the not too distant future. Incentive do good’ing. Highly recommended.
