Art @ Denbigh CPS

Art at Denbigh is taught in several ways.  We teach art through designated art weeks which are undertaken termly.  Staff teach children a range of skills based on different strands of Art each term.  The skills are progressive across the age range of the children.


In Foundation Stage learning objectives are taken from the Early Years Outcomes, usually from the strand of Expressive Arts and Design.  Staff use the objectives they feel the children will need to cover to develop their key skills until they reach the Early Learning Goal.  This is done through continuous provision and through targeted teaching based around a theme or topic.


In KS1 and KS2 staff allocate objectives across the year, using appropriate curriculum coverage based on need and key skills and then make tasks to fit to support the topic


At Denbigh we use a variety of teaching and learning styles in order to develop children’s knowledge, skills and understanding.

All teaching ensures full coverage of the themes of colour, texture, tone, form, space, line, shape and pattern.  We provide children with opportunities to experiment with and explore a wide range of media and tools in order to make discoveries for themselves. We provide guidance through specific teaching of a range of techniques and use of tools as is appropriate to the stage of development and individual needs.

The Arts Council had a fantastic time at Hadrian Park Primary this week sharing their experience as Arts Councillors! They created a presentation and an iMovie to show the children at Hadrian Park all the wonderful Arts Councillors work from the last 2 years! Both schools have made plans to help each other in the future... watch this space for more Arts Council activities. #dcpsart #dcpsmusic ... See MoreSee Less
