at the end of his reading he has got
"national curriculum reading level 1a"
"national curriculum writing level 1b"

and at the end of mathematics he has got
"national curriculum level 2c"

From what I remember (long time ago now) the expected level is 2b at the end of Year 2, so it sounds like he is heading in the right direction with a year to go. His next step up would be a 2c in reading and a 1a in writing and then a 2c, if you see what I mean. Sounds like he's doing just fine.
