Here at St.Peter's CE Primary School, our Art & Design curriculum aims to inspire pupils and develop their confidence to experiment and invent their own works of art. We believe it is important to nurture creativity, experimentation and exploration of their own ideas.
We follow the KAPOW scheme of work which helps to ensure our pupils will have opportunities to develop their ability, nurture their talent and interests, express their ideas and thoughts about the world, as well as learn about art and artists across cultures and through history. We want our pupils to develop the confidence to take risks, express themselves creatively and explore their interests and ideas, as well as be reflective learners who evaluate their work and the work of others.
By using KAPOW as our Art & Design scheme, we are enabling our children to meet the end of key stage attainment targets in the national curriculum. Please see the links below if you'd like to view these.
The Kapow Art & Design curriculum is structured with five key strands that run throughout the scheme:
Other Curriculum Links
Where possible, our Art & Design curriculum makes links to other subjects without losing sight of learning key skills and knowledge. In the Kapow scheme, the planning for each unit shows our teaching staff how links to other subject national curriculum objectives can be made.
