Art, Design & DT
At Snape Wood Primary School, we use the Kapow Art and Design scheme. In art, pupils will learn about some of the most significant pieces of art that have been created and the artists that created them. They will also learn how to produce their own pieces of art in a range of different forms. We place great emphasis on teaching pupils to draw in KS2 so that their skills build up over time. We ensure pupils have lots of chance to practice the basics so that they are able to use their knowledge to create their own pieces of art at the end of a unit of study.
Our Design Technology curriculum is based on the planning provided by Kapow. We use their projects on a page resources to form the basis of our DT curriculum. Pupils take part in designing, making and evaluating a range of different projects and learn about some of the great engineers of the past. Projects involve making mechanisms such as levers, learning to sew and food technology where pupils learn to bake bread and amongst other things.
