At Denbigh Primary School, the Arts are taught both discretely and as an integrated part of our International Primary Curriculum. Music and art are taught by specialist teachers, and although drama is taught predominantly by class teachers, we work closely with a number of professional theatre companies and take part in the annual Shakespeare for Schools Festival. Dance is taught by the PE specialist teacher and is enhanced by extra-curricular workshops led by the local High School and school based dance clubs.
Our pupils are given the opportunity to be actively involved in listening to, composing and performing music. In Key Stage 1 pupils learn to play the recorders and tuned and untuned percussion instruments. In KS2, children have the opportunity to learn to play cellos, violin and glockenspiel. Pupils also take part in weekly singing assemblies, which are led by a specialist singing teacher and they have the opportunity to join the school choir.
