Formality: If we keep it simple, maybe?
- what did you achieve over the last week?
- what did not work out as expected and why?
- what are your plans for the coming week?
- where do you think you may be facing a problem or require more time?

I couldn't have said that better. It covers all areas - how much work
you put in - what you plan to work on, and an explanation of why you
spent the whole week on one bug :)
