It is easy to report what has been done and topics that have been studied but ‘Florence has enjoyed learning about the Tudors’ goes nowhere unless linked to a specific achievement. Avoid comments that merely report on task completion because they are unhelpful without evidence.
Reports need to be written in plain English, not curriculum-speak. Avoid specialist language and professional terminology – ‘mastery’ and ‘higher order thinking’ is meaningful to a teacher but to some parents this won’t mean anything. Parents don’t want to decode a report – it needs to dovetail community understanding so keep it simple and make comments easy to understand. Sentences need to be 15-20 words with two connected ideas/points per sentence.
