I find report writing such a chore. Nearly 30 to do and churning out things for discussion at parents evening. I get the literacy and maths comments, it shows their ability and progression throughout the year (plus this is easy to cut & paste for ability groups). But, the comments about the child's attitude is a real tough one. Of course there is the statement bank of things you can use (although having them for 2 years or having siblings makes me extra careful). I just find it hard and time consuming that I have to sit here on a Sunday afternoon and think about how the child works in my classroom. Writing these takes ages per child and at the sacrifice of my own family time. Hmph, feeling grumpy. Weren't we trying to save our Sundays?
