Children are encouraged to develop their imagination and creativity by exploring tactile, visual and sensory qualities of materials and processes. They learn about the role of art & craft and design in their environment. They begin to understand shape and space, colour, pattern and texture and use them to represent their ideas and feelings.
Children’s musical development is encouraged through the singing of Nursery Rhymes, popular songs and songs related to relevant topics.
Design and Technology:
During Design and Technology activities children learn how to think imaginatively and talk about what they like and dislike when designing and making. They build on their early childhood experiences of investigating objects around them. They explore how familiar things work and talk about, draw and model their ideas. They learn how to design and make safely.
