Expressive Arts and Design

Children are provided with opportunities to explore and share thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of creative activities.

They are encouraged to use their imagination through art and design, music, dance, role play and voices. Nursery children enjoy a music lesson twice a week with our own Music Specialist utilising the Mulberry House music room.

During lessons they are introduced to the basics of rhyme and rhythm through singing, get to play percussion instruments and musical appreciation through the introduction of music from around the world.

The Nursery Nativity introduces children to acting and working together as a team.

Creative and art activities use a variety of different mediums, and sand and water play is provided through carefully structured continuous provision.
