Early Years Art
The children’s’ learning and development is planned around the EYFS Learning Goals. Art in the early years promotes interest, confidence and expression which will feed into writing and numeracy for core subjects as the children progress. Motor skills are refined and practised. Use of colour stimulates and provides an enjoyable and welcoming learning environment when art is displayed.
Key Stage 1 Art (Year 1 and 2)
