Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is made up of Nursery and Reception (ages 3 to 4 and 4 to 5).
Key Stage 1 covers Years 1 and 2. The children in these classes will be 5 to 6 and 6 to 7 years of age respectively. At the beginning of Year 1, children begin work on the National Curriculum.
Key Stage 2 covers Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 and the children in these classes continue to study the National Curriculum.
