ideas to implement into their daily practice. Together we will look at Expressive Arts and Design, as well as all the prime and specific areas and the place that music has throughout the EYFS, particularly communication and language; personal, social and emotional development.

The session will invite participants to consider children’s musical identities and preferences enabling participants to develop practice that is inclusive, worthwhile and connects with children.
