Japanese elementary schools

So, Google found me lots of information about middle school and high school in Japan, but the characters I'm writing about are a little young for that, contrary to the belief of the fandom. Three main questions:

1. When is the cutoff date for a child to have their birthday to register in grade one? I know the school year starts April 1, but do they have to have had their birthday by then? One of the characters has his birthday April 8, and I need to know which grade he would be in.

2. What sort of material would they cover in class? I've found vague lists of classes, but not what sort of material they would learn. The characters are in grade six, grade three/two depending on #1 and grade one.

3. To what extent would it be normal for children that age to be involved in extra-curricular activities?
