At Denbigh, we believe in the value of home learning and that is why we have invested heavily in creating a series of virtual classrooms for your child so that we can bring our classrooms to your home.
Whether it be for weekly home learning or whether it be because your child is unable to attend school in person, Denbigh has developed a Google Classroom for your child to provide them with a learning experience similar to their own classroom here at Denbigh.
Every child at Denbigh is allocated a personal Google Learning Account that they can use to access their Google Classroom. Within our Google Classrooms we provide a broad and balanced curriculum that reflects our school provision. Learning is regularly assigned to children and teachers and teaching assistants continually provides challenge and support as our pupils engage in their remote learning.
Technical support is available to our pupils and parents to ensure our virtual classrooms are inclusive.
In additional to our Goolge Classrooms, please find below a series of links that you can use to support your child with their learning. Your child will require a username and password. If your child does not have a username and password then please contact your class teacher via Class Dojo.
*Our home learning activities will be frequently updated during the coronavirus outbreak to support children not able to attend school.

Year 6 have had a super visit with, ‘That History Bloke,’ who taught them about Peter Barrett, a local Victorian. They had to use their skills of reading census data, looking at a headstone, learning about mining and pulling all this information together to find out what happened to him. They asked lots of interesting questions and worked well as a class to answer the questions about him. They then got to look at a variety of mining artefacts, which they really enjoyed. #dcpslion #dcpscore #dcpstopic #dcpshistory ... See MoreSee Less
Year 6 were learning the drawing skills of hatching, cross hatching, stippling and ink wash then making their work lighter or darker using these techniques. They then used different mediums to create textures using poster paint and water colours together with cotton wool, tissue paper, sponges and a washing up brush! Im sure you agree, they are learning lots of skills. #dcpslion #DCPStiger #dcpsart #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
Yesterday, Year 6 were learning about the technique of ‘Impasto’, where they had to layer the paint on to create a bumpy texture. We had been comparing actual versus implied texture. #dcpslion #dcpsart #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
Today the dinos had great fun experimenting with creating texture by mixing different things in with paint to create a landscape. It’s amazing the difference hair gel, flour, rice, sand, sugar and wood shavings can make. #dcpsdinosaur #dcpsart #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
Continuing with Art, we had a sewing challenge this afternoon. We studied different types of stitches and discussed how we could use them to create texture in our work. Then we had a go at them ourselves. It was tricky, but we showed resilience and teamwork and had a lovely afternoon! #dcpselephant #dcpsart #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
Elephants have been enjoying Art week. Today they selected different materials to recreate art work we had looked at, at the start of the week. They thought carefully about what colours and textures they wanted to use, before building up their pieces. #dcpselephant #dcpsart #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Yesterday we practiced using weighing scales to find different amounts of pasta. We had weighed pasta up to 600g! Even though the scales were tough to read we have a great time and worked as a team. Today we continued our work on measuring mass and used balanced scales to find out the weight of different objects.. #dcpsdragon #dcpsmaths #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
Who is this xx
The dinos are continuing on with their work on measuring mass. Today we used balance scales to find out how heavy different objects in the classroom were using different weights. #dcpsdinosaur #dcpsmaths #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
Well done Ryan xx
This morning we practised using weighing scales to find different amounts of pasta. While it was tricky to read the scales, the hardest part was keeping the pan on top of the scales (we spent quite a bit of time picking pasta off the floor). We would love to practise more weighing at home if we can.

We have been building up our vocabulary bank in Year 5 by using the Descriptosaurus books to find exciting phrases that we plan to use within our hot write - an Anglo-Saxon legend. We have had to think really carefully about how we can describe our hero and villain characters in order to create an image in the reader’s mind. #dcpsdolphin #dcpscore #dcpsenglish ...

Year 5 Dolphins have been working hard during our Commando Joe sessions. Today we had to use problem solving and logical thinking to move from one place to another, following a strict set of rules. We had to all work as a team and always try and think two steps ahead! #dcpsdolphin #dcpscore #dcpslotc #dcpspe ... See MoreSee Less
Year 5 applied their knowledge of line graphs to create their own masking tape line graphs using data they had collected in Maths today. They had to be careful to ensure their axes were accurate and to record their data precisely! #dcpswhale #dcpsdolphin #dcpsmaths #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
The Whales have been using the descriptosaurus books in English to help them to describe their hero and villain characters for their Anglo-Saxon legends. They have been working hard to use exciting vocabulary and include ‘show not tell’ description. Miss Chambers can’t wait to read them! #dcpswhale #dcpsenglish #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
Elephants started Art week this week looking at texture. We began by looking at different artists, how they are insipired by nature and how they use texture in their work. We then explored different materials and used magnifying glasses to look closely at how the materials were made. Using our observation skills we then used different grades of pencil to sketch the textures we could see. #dcpselephant #dcpsart #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
Year 4 took their maths outside today. To complete our data and statistics unit we had a go at graphing. We made a bar graph to show the months we were born, thinking about our axis labels and title. Then we had a go at creating line graphs using temperature data over 5 days. #dcpselephant #dcpsgiraffe #dcpsmaths #dcpslotc #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

This morning we moved on in our measurement learning to look at mass. We looked at different objects and estimated if we thought they would be lighter than, heavier than or about the same weight as 1kg. Then out came the balance scales to check.

On Monday, some of the Year 5 children had the fantastic opportunity to work with David Kirtlan for the NTLT iPad Songwriting Festival 2020. The children worked on GarageBand to compose their own songs. They had to use different loops, instruments and genres to create their pieces. They sounded brilliant! Stay tuned for what’s to come... #dcpsmusic #dcpscore #dcpswhale #dcpsdolphin ... See MoreSee Less

This week, Year 6 have enjoyed a virtual author visit with Ross Mackenzie who is the author of The Nowhere Emporium and Shadowsmith. This was part of the Northern Children’s Book Festival. We were able to listen to him talk about his childhood and what inspired him to become an author as well as his career as an award winning author. He read us some of his book and then gave us the opportunity to ask him some questions about his books and his career. It was a great session and we are all excited to read some more of his work.
