The Arts

Art and design are a natural means of communication and learning for young children. Through the freedom of play, children explore natural and man-made materials and have opportunities to experiment with colour, shape, pattern and texture. This helps them to think through ideas, develop visual, spatial and tactile awareness, and develop investigative and manipulative skills.

Children will be learning to:

  • express their own ideas through pictures & models
  • enjoy using a wide variety of media, e.g. pencils, paint, scrap materials, sponges, clay, dough
  • play imaginatively on their own or in a group
  • enjoy making music by singing, clapping and playing percussion instruments  
  • enjoy listening to music
