Expressive Arts and Design

This is a crucial area as it enables children to make connections between one area of learning and another. Children use their senses to explore and make sense of the world around them. Through a range of creative activities, young children 're-create' their experiences, communicate their ideas and feelings to others, and also think and imagine. We provide opportunities for children to respond to music, movement / drama, painting, drawing, collage, model making, imaginative and role play.


A substantial area is devoted to the Creative Workshop where children can develop confidence in following through their own ideas through choosing from a wide selection of materials and resources.


This area is available all of the time so that children can develop their ideas alongside learning and practicing skills.
