What school year would my children be in? Anyone know any good schools in Petersfield?

Hello,
I am a little confused about the school years in England as we currently live in Spain and are thinking of moving back in a few months. Was wondering if anyone could help? Does it depend on the school?
My dd is 4, will be 5 in February, so does that mean she should be in Year 1 Primary? (here she´s in reception as it goes by calendar year). My ds is 6, nearly 7, will be 7 in November so does that mean he should be in Year 2 or Year 3 at the moment? (here he´s in year 3 but among the youngest in his year group).
Anybody know of any good primary schools in the Petersfield area? Preferably state ones as I don´t think we can afford to go private (especially as we have another one on the way!)
Thank you to anybody who can help. Sara

No your DD would be in Reception.
DS would be in Year 2.

Thanks for that. Not sure how it would work for ds who´s did Year 2 last year (they are currently at a British school following British curriculum) although I guess it´d probably give him a confidence boost as he´d no longer be one of the youngest in his year.

Castille is right - Reception and Yr 2

Petersfield infants is pretty good I think, as are many of the village schools around there - several friends kids go to Langrish, Steep or Sheet.

Check here for info on applying for a place in the middle of the year.
