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.

Year 6 Tigers have worked extremely hard this week to complete their DT week and make their Christmas baubles. Measuring, carefully cutting, adding decoration and learning new sewing skills has resulted in some fantastic Christmas baubles. Miss Stephenson #DCPStiger #dcpscore #dcpsdt #dcpsart ...

Yesterday to end DT week the Dragons designed and created their own diamond kites. They had to design their own and follow that design. They have worked so hard all week and created AMAZING kites that they are super proud of. Well done Dragons! #dcpsdragon #dcpsdt #dcpsart #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Year 6 Lions learnt how to code a Micro:bit today to make it either write a Christmas message, play a song or light up, which then went inside their musical entertainment Christmas box. They worked really hard today and mastered this coding (which was originally designed for year 7!) They had to create an ebook with their work, which included writing, photographs and videoing both themselves modelling how to code and their final product. I think you agree, a lot of skills in one day! #dcpslion #dcpscomputing #dcpsdt #dcpscore #dcpsmaths #dcpsart #dcpsmusic ... See MoreSee Less

Year 6 Lions are having a fantastic day so far. They have been designing their musical entertainment Christmas box, using lots of measuring, design, technology, team working and communication skills. We have snowmen, reindeers, Christmas trees and presents. They are currently learning how to code their Micro:bit ready to add in their coding to the decoration. Watch out for their final designs later on. #dcpslion #dcpscomputing #dcpsdt #dcpscore #dcpsmaths #dcpsart ... See MoreSee Less

Year 6 Tigers have had a great day working with Mr Brown (an ICT wizard) to make a Christmas themed entertainment box. They coded their microbit to play a Christmas tune as well as show a Christmas themed message. Watch this space for their final videos.
