EYFS - The starting point for Art & Design:
Pupils should be continually be given opportunity to explore, revisit ideas, work collaboratively, develop fine motor control and use tools including scissors. Creativity needs to be fostered in these early stages of development. A positive mindset to individual expression should be at the forefront. “Who am I?” can be explored through creative opportunity.
Explore different materials freely, in order to develop their ideas about how to use them and what to make.
Develop their own ideas and then decide which materials to use to express them.
Join different materials and explore different textures.
Create closed shapes with continuous lines and begin to use these shapes to represent objects.
Draw with increasing complexity and detail, such as representing a face with a circle and including details.
Use drawing to represent ideas like movement or loud noises.
