Art @ Denbigh CPS

Subject Lead: Miss Clarke

We strongly believe in the importance of art in developing our children. As a result of our passion and commitment to Art, we are currently a Gold Standard Artsmark school. 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.

This week we explored ‘The very hungry caterpillar’ story and have had a very busy week! We learnt Makaton signs for the story and used them to help us to retell it. We thought about who was in the story and what happened, sorting and counting the food he ate!
The Children loved creating giant pictures of the different food from the story using all sorts of craft materials. We then used those to act out the story using the cocoon that we made whilst wearing caterpillar costumes. We also coloured the pictures and made stick puppets and enjoyed the story stones and matched them to the pictures. #dcpsart #dcpscaterpillar #dcpsliteracy

Nursery have had an amazing time the last couple of weeks and have really settled in well. We are so proud of them all. This week we have been exploring the season Autumn and the children have loved all the different textures in our Autumn tuff tray.
We have also been painting,colouring , building and riding bikes. We have practised great listening skills, lining up smartly as well as playing and sharing with our friends.
What a fantastic start to the term! Parents can check out more photos via the seesaw app.
