Expressive Arts and Design



Our intent is for our children to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials, sharing their thoughts, feelings and ideas.




We provide children with opportunities to explore and create freely with a range of materials and participate in whole school projects. These provide children with a real-life purpose that they create presentable outcomes that are shared with the wider community.



We monitor the progress of our children through regular, ongoing observations and assessments. We use the Statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage and Development Matters to plan our progressive curriculum, across our EYFS, in order ensure that our children are making good progress. We also moderate both within school and externally as a LAT to ensure that our judgements are accurate. Children are also taught to explain their learning through use of graphic organisers.
