This is his work, heavily assisted by an adult, in September this year:
Obviously all words were dictated to and spelt for him. That is half an hour's worth of work.
This is a piece of completely independent work he did today.
For me, there is clear progression here. But I'm really struggling to be able to say he's working towards a 1b:
Do you think he's far off? What can I do to help him? I've tried so many things. Maybe I'm just being hard on myself because he clearly has improved since September. He is enjoying writing now, too, which he didn't before.
(P.S. I do know it's not all about levels. I hate data. But you know what it's like...)
