Expressive Arts and Design

Children are taught to express their ideas through art, design, imaginative play and music.

Children are taught to use a range of materials effectively and purposefully. They are shown how to use simple tools and techniques to design and create their ideas.

Through small world and imaginative play, children are able to act out real life experiences and create their own adventures, helping them to make sense of the world around them. Adults support children in their play, enhancing vocabulary and teaching children how to develop ideas collaboratively.
