Listen to and enjoy with children a variety of sounds, and music from diverse cultures.
Sensitively introduce children to language to describe sounds and rhythm, e.g. loud and soft, fast and slow.
Understand that young children’s creative and expressive processes are part of their development of thinking and communicating as well as being important in their own right.
Become familiar with the properties and characteristics of materials and tools.
Observe, analyse and document the processes involved in a child’s creative and expressive processes, to support greater understanding, inform planning and share with families, carers, and other professionals.
