Last year we had some problems with reading, but now my DS (Year 1) is more or less OK. He reads a lot at home (Horrid Henry and so on) and i don't worry about his reading level at school any more. My main problem is that his maths skills are extremly bad.
Although, he passed his number bonds (10, 20) and now he is on time tables, he has problems with adding say 9 and 7. He doesn't want to play board games. He might play some maths games at computer (the school use some websites). He can add, say 6 and 8 a few times within 5 minutes and had a problem with it 10 minutes later.
