Intent: What do we hope to achieve?
In EYFS, Expressive Arts and Design is the development of children’s artistic and cultural awareness supports their imagination and creativity. It is important that children have regular opportunities to engage with the arts, enabling them to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials. The quality and variety of what children see, hear and participate in is crucial for developing their understanding, self-expression, vocabulary and ability to communicate through the arts. The frequency, repetition and depth of their experiences are fundamental to their progress in interpreting and appreciating what they hear, respond to and observe.

genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and

appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical
- understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including
