Bear has his report card for the end of year. He is awesome. He got 12 As out of 30 marks and 14 Bs with 4 Cs. C is working at an age appropriate level, so he's doing very well. Two of the Cs were for Art, one for PE and one was the effort mark for Writing. I did feel for bear. He got an A for attainment and a C for effort. I can't see why he would want to put more work in if he's getting an A. In fact, all his marks for attainment were higher or equal to his effort apart from PE. He's going to get a shock in high school, but at the moment he's doing just fine. So while I am being discretion itself on facebook where the other mums hang out, I'm boasting here. Bear is doing well.
The best bit of the report was the comments. According to the teacher, bear is kind and considerate. All the marks can be pushed and chivvied up, but kind and considerate are something that comes from bear himself. That's the most important thing and the part of the whole report I'm most proud of!
