At Canon Burrows, we are following the Kapow scheme of work.
We aim to inspire pupils and develop their confidence to experiement and invent their own works of art. The scheme is designed to give pupils the opportunity to develop their ability, nurture their talents and interests, express their ideas and thoughts about the world, as well as learning about art and artists across cultures and through history.
Kapow Primary Art and Design scheme of work supports pupils to meet the national curriculum end of key stage attainment targets.
The Kapow Art scheme of work is designed with four strands that run throughout. These are: Generating ideas, using sketchbooks, markings skills, including formal emelemts (line, shape, tone, texture, pattern, colour), knowledge of artists, evaluating and analysing.
The units of lessons are sequential, allowing children to build their skills and knowledge, applying them to a range of outcomes. The formal elements, a key part of the national curriculum, are woven throughout the units. Key skills are revisited again and again with increasing complecity in a spiral curriculum model. This allows pupils to revise and build on their previous learning. Units in each year group are organised into four core areas:
- Painting and mixed-media
- sculpture and 3D
- Craft and design
The expected impact of following the Kapow Primary Art and design scheme of work is that children will:
- Produce creative work, exploring and recording their idead and experiences.
- Be proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques.
- Evaluate and analyse creative works using subject-specific language.
- Know about great artists and the historical and cultural development of their art.
- Meet the end of key stage expectations outlined in the national curriculum for Art and Design.
At Canon Burrows, we have achieved Artsmark Gold Award, this is something we are extremely proud of.
We have also taken part in Art Awards projects. This is something we hope to continue each year!
