Expressive Arts and Design

Expressive Arts and Design is split into 2 sections:


  1. Exploring and Using Media and Materials
  2. Being Imaginative





Children have free access to the creative area and also take part in art/craft/DT activities in and outside. They explore musical instruments and develop imagination through play and role play.

They work towards the Early learning Goals of

  1. Children sing songs, make music and dance, and experiment with ways of changing them. They safely use and explore a variety of materials, tools and techniques, experimenting with colour, design, texture, form and function.
  1. Children use what they have learnt about media and materials in original ways, thinking about uses and purposes. They represent their own ideas, thoughts and feelings through design and technology, art, music, dance, role play and stories.
