What our pupils will learn:

As a school, we have chosen to use a published scheme, Kapow Art and Design Scheme of Work to teach the Art and Design Curriculum in Key Stage 1 and 2. Kapow Art and Design Scheme of work enables our teachers to deliver creative, inspiring and engaging lessons and provides for progression in skills and knowledge. We are confident that the scheme of work meets the requirements for the National Curriculum for Computing and the Expressive Arts and Design section of the Early Years curriculum.  As the scheme becomes embedded, the Subject Leader for Art and Design will provide planning and resources for further opportunities to study local artists and art from different cultures and religions which reflect our locality.

What our pupils will learn in Early Years Foundation Stage:

At Cononley Primary School, staff select resources from the Kapow EYFS curriculum   to support the teaching of the  Early Years curriculum and the achievement of the Early Learning Goals for Expressive Arts and Design ‘Exploring and Using Media and Materials’ and ‘Being Imaginative. EYFS pupils are taught in variety of ways through adult-led and supported tasks and child-initiated learning in provision areas. Practitioners will take into account the Characteristics of Effective Learning when they are planning, leading or supporting learning. To see the EYFS Curriculum, please click the link below:

EYFS Curriculum: Expressive Arts and Design

 

How our pupils will be taught Art and Design in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2:

Key Stage 1

The Kapow Scheme of Work for Art and Design for Key Stage 1 is taught in a block of lessons over the period of approximately one week each term.

Key Stage 2

The Kapow Scheme of Work for Art and Design for Key Stage 2 is taught in a block of lessons over the period of approximately two full days each term.

Teaching Art and Design in blocks at Key Stage 1 and 2, allows the curriculum to be studied in depth; pupils will have time to complete longer pieces of work over the course of a block rather than in short weekly sessions.

Progression and Assessment

EYFS

Regular observations and assessments of learning are recorded using an on-line journal (Tapestry) and contribute to a summative assessment at the end of EYFS using the Early Years Outcomes for Expressive Arts and Design: ‘Exploring and Using Media and Materials’ and ‘Being Imaginative’.

 KS1 and KS2

Pupils' learning is assessed during and at the end of the unit, using the assessment documents which are part of the Kapow scheme. The assessments contribute to a summative judgement at the end of the year.

 Impact

The impact of the curriculum will be reviewed at the end of the year through observations and assessments of pupils’ learning and through pupil discussions about their learning, which includes discussion of their thoughts, ideas, processing and evaluations of work.
