7. Expressive Arts and Design

Expressive Arts and Design (EAD) is one of four specific areas of learning within the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. There are seven areas of learning in total, three prime areas and four specific areas.

Expressive Arts and Design encompasses a wide breadth of creative areas, such as listening and responding to music, singing, dancing and performing, experimenting with colour mixing and different textures, creating models, for example, junk modelling, small world, construction and role play.
