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.

Elephants had an amazing day at Segedunum today. This was the finale of our Frontiers Voices project. We got to see our completed art work, it looks fantastic! We are so proud of what we have a achieved and learned as part of our local heritage. We also got to make Roman helmets which we wore in the afternoon for the museum takeover. We loved sharing our work and learning experience with our parents. If you can pop along a see it! #dcpselephant #dcpshistory #dcpsgeography #dcpsart #dcpslotc #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Year 4 have had a great day at Segedunum, we created our own Roman helmets and had chance to look at our art work in the exhibition. In the afternoon we invited our parents to come and see our work and we loved being able to share our learning. #dcpsgiraffe #dcpshistory #dcpsart #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Last week the full time nursery explored the topic space as they listened to the story Whatever Next by Jill Murphy. The children imagined what it would be like to go into space and built their own rocket ships using our junk modelling resources and Lego. The children had great fun exploring our space tuff tray and PJ Mask figures and used these to make up their own space adventures. We thought about who might live in space and made our own alien puppets and created our own rocket pictures using different shapes #dcpsEYFS #dcpscaterpillar #dcps30hours #dcpscore #dcpsmaths #dcpsenglish #dcpsdt #dcpsart ...
