We live in a village overlooking the Cumbrian fells. My nine-year-old son has seen cows and sheep almost on his doorstep from being a baby. He shared my amusement at the absurdity of the following comment on his recent geography report: "J is becoming more aware that land in some areas is used for farming."
As a parent and a teacher, I feel there are two lessons here: when writing reports remember your audience and purpose; and, beware the bland and soulless "bank of statements".
We may all feel like robots at the end of term but we must try to sound human.
