Our C.O.R.E Curriculum Vision

Our Curriculum Design

Our curriculum has been carefully designed, planned and organised to ensure that our children’s needs are at the heart of our curriculum.

 

It is our firm belief that the substance of our education prepares children well for the challenges they will face in life and at the next stage of their education.


Denbigh’s curriculum is based on the fundamental principle that every child will achieve the highest possible outcomes in their academic and personal development. It is for this reason that we have developed our ‘CORE’ curriculum.


When planning each topic/area, we start by looking at the standard we expect every child to achieve and what deep level learning looks like. Learning experiences are then planned to ensure that every child stands the best possible chance of achieving this.

 

We believe that our curriculum and the use of our ‘CORE’ learning will not only provide our pupils with a knowledge and understanding of the National Curriculum but will deliver children with challenging, engaging and stimulating opportunities to apply their learning. Therefore, ensuring children deepen their knowledge and understanding.

 

By creating a comprehensive and robust curriculum we can use a cross curricular approach to add depth and purpose to our learning. We expect the standards of our learning to be demonstrated equally across core (English, Maths and Science) and foundation subjects (Art, Computing, P.E, Design Technology, Geography, History, Music, R.E, P.S.H.E, M.F.L). 

Within foundation subjects,  the main learning outcome must relate to the subject being studied but the children will have opportunities to apply their knowledge and understanding from core subjects.

 

Having reviewed the needs of our children, we developed our C.O.R.E curriculum. The CORE curriculum ensures that all subjects are taught with the pupils needs in mind. Every subject must provide CORE learning.

C – Communication (Opportunities for Speaking and Listening, Reading and Writing).

O – Opportunities for Challenge (Effectively using data tracking to challenge pupils).

R – Reasoning (Use and apply learning through logic, deduction and induction).  

E – Experiences (Provide meaningful, interactive learning opportunities).

Our curriculum is designed to meet the needs of every pupil in our school.
When designing our curriculum, we carefully look at the needs of every child/group and tailor the curriculum to deliver what best meets their needs and how they learn most effectively.
Every child’s progress is carefully monitored and tracked and action taken immediately if progress is not as expected.

 

Our careful curriculum design and planning means that we build in many opportunities for repetition and practise opportunities for essential knowledge, skills and understanding in every subject. This ensures that children are able to revisit previous learning, which allows them to gradually develop a deeper understanding of the skills and processes within subjects, at their own pace and in the best possible way for each individual child throughout their years at Denbigh.

The Y5 Whales have been amazing during their PE lessons with Miss Chambers. We have been practising our hockey skills which include control, dribbling, blocking and passing. Well done Whales! #dcpspe #dcpswhale #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

The Dinos explored partitioning numbers into different combinations of tens and ones. They are clever little people.

Y2 Dinos had a great time on their first mission with Commando Joe, using teamwork to transfer “water” from one bucket to another to aid in putting out the fires in London in 1666. Lots of fantastic ideas for transferring water, despite the obstacles such as fallen timbers and rickety bridges. Excellent work Dinos.

There have been many things that we haven't been able to do for our Year 6 leavers this year, but there was one tradition that we couldn't go without - our leavers' video.

Even though it was filmed under strange circumstances, I think you will all agree that it is a lovely representation of the heart, tenacity and resilience that our year 6 children possess.

We hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.

Well done boys

Year 1 had a very special visitor from Warburtons on a Friday. We looked at how to make a healthy, balanced sandwich using the five food groups. Thank you for our loaf of bread that we got to take home... yum yum! #dcpspanda #dcpstopic #dcpspshe #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

During our STEM week, year 4 focused on the different environments around the world as part of our ‘Our Diverse Planet’ topic. Over the course of the week, we observed the temperature in the Sahara Desert and we made a practical line graph to show the change over time! They look fantastic! #dcpsgiraffe #dcpsstem #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Year 4 giraffes took part in a live workout today for Sports Relief today! We were exhausted by the end but it was lots of fun and helped keep us active and healthy. I think we might do this more often! #dcpsgiraffe #dcpscore #dcpspe ... See MoreSee Less

Sport Relief featuring the Dinos! Don’t think it was a coincidence that Ms Guthrie only joined us for the cool down... 🤔😂 A great time was had and lots of money raised.

The Y4 Elephants have had a fantastic and inspiring morning at Live Tales. The children had the opportunity to write creatively and bring our characters to life. We even had an illustrator creating our characters whilst we gave details! Thank you Live Tales! #dcpselephant #dcpsenglish #dcpscore #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less

Mrs clarke is so impressed with the children in year 3. We now have 10 children working on decimal multiplication, 2 children completely passed decimals and the rest hot on their heels. Look at our newest 55 and 34 club members.

Throughout the week, the Elephants have been monitoring the temperature and climate in the Sahara Desert. We kept a record of the temperature in a table and we created a line graph with our results BUT this wasn’t any ordinary graph... we had to create it using tape and sticky notes!!! #dcpselephant #dcpsstem #dcpscore ...

During British Science Week this week, the Y4 Elephants have been learning all about ‘Our Diverse Planet.’ They have been looking across the globe at different habitats and the variety of environments we have. We have studied the Sahara Desert, rainforests and Antarctica. We had to test different materials to see which were the best insulators so we could design a coat suitable for the Antarctic climate! The children used thermometers to see which materials created the largest temperature change of the water #dcpselephant #dcpsstem #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
