This part of the curriculum is about enabling children to experiment with media and materials, finding out about their properties and modifying and manipulating them. It includes exploring sounds, patterns, movement and different tools and techniques.
Children will be taught the skills they need to join materials, thinking about cause and effect.
The learning environment provides planned opportunities for children to perform, building a repertoire of songs and dances. Children also take part in taught music sessions where they learn how to create sounds using instruments.
