  2. Looks level 2 to me. There's a (weak) narrative, and some evidence of varied vocab. 2b?
  3. I think Level 2 also. Prob 2B. How are you finding Surrey grids? Better than other APP?
  4. Lots of level 2 elements, but would say that the grammatically inaccurate sentence structure - evidence of verbal sentences rather than written puts it at low 2 not secure.
  5. Do a google search for "writing assessment criterion scale" and you should find a PDF document with level descriptors/ boundaries. Very useful and we use it weekly to level Big Writing
    Hope this helps!
