Artist of the week is a really good way to encourage the children to get creative and haver ownership over their work!
Expressive Art and Design is one of the 7 areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage!
Exploring and Using Media and Materials
This is about how children experiment with media and materials finding out about their properties and modifying and manipulating them. It includes exploring sounds, patterns, movement and different tools and techniques.
This is about children’s explorations into the world of pretence, building on their experiences of the real world and transforming them into something new – whether through role play, music, pretend play, block play or small world play or a range of other areas.
