Expressive arts and design
Expressive arts and design enables children to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials. They provide opportunities and encouragement for sharing thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role-play, and design and technology.
Exploring and using media and materials:
Exploring and using media and materials: children sing songs, make music and dance, and experiment with ways of changing sounds and movement. They safely use and explore a variety of materials, tools and techniques, experimenting with colour, design, texture, form and function.
Being imaginative: 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.
