DS has just started Year 2. Last night he was able to read the first chapter of Flat Stanley to me reasonably fluently with only a few queries (e.g what's "despite" mean?)!

In Reception I despaired as to whether he would ever get it, while his (female) cousin at that age had been reading Harry Potter...

They all go at their own speeds and most catch up to about the same level by the end of Year 2 (wise words from very experienced Reception teacher). My DD and DS both needed extra help (due to a speech problem). DD is now 14, ahead of her reading age and very good at English. DS has just started Y3. He finished Y2 exactly average - were so proud. Sounds like he's doing really well.
