Expressive Art and Design (EAD)


In the EYFS, EAD is broken down into two aspects:

·         Exploring and using media and materials

·         Being imaginative


Your child will:

Learn and perform a range of old and new songs

Play with musical instruments (e.g. drums, tambourines, maracas etc)

Engage in role play

Use the dressing up clothes and costumes

Use junk modelling materials to create own models (please bring in cardboard boxes, tubes etc for us to use!)

Choose particular colours to use for a purpose

Construct with a purpose in mind, using a variety of resources

Use simple tools (e.g. scissors)

Play alongside other children who are engaged in the same theme

Play cooperatively as part of a group to develop and act out a narrative
