Here in Class 1 our intention is in line with our whole school vision. We are committed to forming positive relationships with every child and supporting the development of happy, confident and secure children who have a love of learning and demonstrate motivation and perseverance when facing learning challenges. We recognise that all children are individuals and we work hard to know them uniquely and understand their different learning styles. We ensure we provide a stimulating learning space both inside and outside that meets their learning needs but, also reflects their interests as well as meeting the needs of a broad and balanced curriculum. We priortise early reading and early mark making from their first day in school because we want to give them every opportunity to become successful. This includes the daily teaching of high quality synthetic phonics and immersion in a maths curriculum rich in problem solving to develop those life long characteristics of learning.

The Early Years Curriculum:


Everything in Reception is carefully planned and structured to help your child’s development and takes into account their interests. This is undertaken through the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. The Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is organised to take care of, and develop the whole child, and not just their academic learning. Our Foundation curriculum covers the following:-


  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development;
  • Physical Development
  • Communication and Language;
  • Literacy;
  • Mathematics;
  • Understanding the World;
  • Expressive Arts and Design.

The prime areas begin to develop quickly in response to relationships and experiences, and run through and support learning in all other areas. In addition, there are four specific areas of learning. The specific areas include essential skills and knowledge. They grow out of the prime areas, and provide important contexts for learning.






How will your child learn through play at Malvern Wells?


Play underpins the EYFS and the curriculum is delivered through a careful balance of Adult led activities and play. Play reinforces learning and all aspects of children’s development. Through play, children develop language skills, their emotions and creativity, social and intellectual skills. For most children their play is natural and spontaneous although some children may need extra help from adults. Play takes place indoors and outdoors and it is in these different environments that children explore and discover their immediate world. It is here they practise new ideas and skills, they take risks, show imagination and solve problems on their own or with others. Because it’s fun, children often become very absorbed in what they are doing. In turn, this helps them develop the ability to concentrate and persevere with a task.


Here are a few examples of how the toys and activities we have in Early Years will support your child’s learning and development:

  • Sand and water play can be an early introduction to science and maths, e.g. learning that water is fluid, not solid, and that it can be measured in different sized containers.
  • Playing with dough, drawing and painting pictures, dressing up, playing with dolls can encourage creativity, imagination and expression of feelings.
  • Building blocks, jigsaws and shape sorters can help with recognising different shapes and sizes, putting things in order and developing logic.
  • Playing ball games, dancing, running, climbing all help to develop body movement, strength, flexibility and co-ordination skills.
  • Games help with turn taking, sharing and mixing with others.
  • Singing, playing simple music instruments help to develop rhythm, listening and hearing.
  • The role-play area is a wonderful place for make-believe, dressing up, trying out different roles. It provides scope for developing imagination, language, sharing, co-operation and mathematics.
  • Through cooking the children are able to discover the properties of different types of food as well as developing language, mathematical and scientific skills.
  • Playing outside every day. It is important that children develop their climbing, sliding, and jumping skills. The children have an opportunity to play in the mud kitchen as well as building dens and gross motor water games.
