Throughout all of our classes in our EYFS department we aim to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum which is both differentiated and based on the girls’ needs, interests and level of development. We ensure our curriculum is exciting while offering an appropriate level of challenge to the girls. Our curriculum addresses the girls’ social, emotional, physical, intellectual, moral and cultural development within a safe, secure and stimulating environment. It also enables the girls to develop skills, attitudes and understanding in all the seven inter-connected areas of learning. All areas are of equal importance.
Throughout our EYFS department we aim to give the girls both independent and adult led learning experiences, opportunities and first hand experiences in all our learning environments both indoor and outdoor, to enable the girls to be active, explore and to think creatively. This enables the girls both to work towards the Early Learning Goals and helps them prepare for the National Curriculum.
At Maltman’s Green we value mindsets, skills and attitudes that we believe are invaluable in helping our girls become independent thinkers and learners, as well as preparing them for the future.
We also provide enrichment experiences to our girls through specialist teaching and either a school trip, outing or special visitor every term. Parents are both encouraged and welcomed into our classes throughout the year to address the girls. Examples of what our parents share include details of their culture, religious beliefs (during different festivals for example), their experiences of the world or details of their job.
