Expressive arts and design involves enabling children to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials, as well as providing opportunities and encouragement for sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role-play, and design and technology.
Examples within the Foundation Stage setting include:
Opportunities for role-play linked to the current Topic theme (e.g. Dinosaur World)
Exploring a range of instruments and enjoying songs and rhymes
Making use of junk modelling materials for arts and craft activities
