EYFS Expressive Arts & 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.”
 
Children in EYFS follow some areas of Development Matters through topics that link to National Curriculum subjects, taught in Year 1 and Year 2.
