Teacher has been very busy writing school reports.
In order to prepare us to be able to
understand these reports better,
She read us all the ‘best bits’ from our reports
from Junior Infants,
We had to guess who she was talking about.
We talked about the meanings of words like
Shane was able to tell us that
‘infectious’ means the same as ‘contagious’!
You may wonder what the word
was doing in a school report!
Well some teachers said that
the students’ SMILES were ‘infectious’.
We also learned the meaning of phrases like
‘has a great work ethic’.
It would appear that
the students in
2nd class Room 6
have always been
Some things said about the students
in 2nd Class Room 6
when added together
would make it very easy
for us to do some detective work
and to narrow down
what student we might be
‘excels at PE’,
‘a talented actress’,
‘a wonderful singer’,
‘a great memory for new vocabulary’,
‘loves language’ and
‘a phenomenal mathematician’.
For that reason Teacher only read out
these ‘give away’ phrases
when we had guessed correctly
who this person might be.
It was great to hear all the positive things
teachers had said about us since Junior Infants.
It made us feel good about ourselves
Teacher didn’t read out our reports for this year.
They are going to be a surprise …
a good surprise!
It will be the best report we ever got.
This is because we are more
and grown up
She said our grown ups will be able
to frame them
and to photocopy them
and send them to family and friends.
So where do we go from here?
Well next week we are going to write our own reports.
And the week after…
we are going to write reports for
or Perfect Peter
or perhaps My Naughty Little Sister.
Teacher will post some of this work on the blog.
