Expressive Arts and Design (EAD) helps 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. Children take part in music and singing activities – including African Dance with Mr Koffii and music with Mr Dapo. The Children also sing songs as part of our morning assembly routine.
EAD also covers 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. Within each class we have a home area, and opportunities for small world play and dressing up so children can use and explore their imagination. We also have several events throughout the year such as the Christmas Nativity play, Easter parade and Independence Day where the children can express themselves through song and role play.
