Art & Design at Kingsacre


From the very beginning children are encouraged to represent their own ideas, thoughts and feelings through their exploration of Expressive arts and design. Children will do this by safely exploring, using and refining a variety of artistic effects to express their ideas and feelings, returning to and building on their previous learning, refining ideas and developing their ability to represent them, creating collaboratively, sharing ideas, resources and skills. Children will work on their Physical Development by developing their fine motor skills so that they can use a range of tools competently, safely and confidently.

Children will achieve the following Early Learning Goals:

Physical Development – Fine Motor Skills

  • Hold a pencil effectively in preparation for fluent writing – using the tripod grip in almost all cases.
  • Use a range of small tools, including scissors, paintbrushes and cutlery.
  • Begin to show accuracy and care when drawing.

Expressive Arts and Design – Creating with Materials

  • Safely use and explore a variety of materials, tools and techniques, experimenting with colour, design, texture, form and function.
  • Share their creations, explaining the process they have used.
