Expressive Arts and Design

Expressive Arts and Design:


The development of children’s artistic and cultural awareness supports their imagination and creativity. It is important that children have regular opportunities to engage with the arts, enabling them to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials. The quality and variety of what children see, hear and participate in is crucial for developing their understanding, self-expression, vocabulary and ability to communicate through the arts. The frequency, repetition and depth of their experiences are fundamental to their progress in interpreting and appreciating what they hear, respond to and observe.

Lesson 3 - Nursery loved exploring and experimenting with the different percussion instruments. We shared the story 'Were going on a bear hunt' by Michael Rosan and played the instruments quietly, loudly, quickly and slowly to represent the different sounds.

Let's get crafty - Nursery have been practising their threading skills. We threaded pasta onto string, pipe cleaners through colanders and have been weaving in and out of punched holes.
