Art, Craft, Design and Cookery

Barming School Arts, Crafts, Design and Cookery

 

Welcome to the Art, Craft, Design and Cookery page.  We are excited to announce a fresh scheme of work for 2022-2023 where the children will be able to explore a wide range of skills from investigating a diverse range of artists, cooking and nutrition, textiles, the digital world, electrical and mechanical systems and much more.

 

Please come back to this page regularly to see our amazing range of work!

Art and Design

Intent

 

At Barming Primary School we follow the Kapow Primary’s Art and Design scheme of work which aims to inspire pupils and develop their confidence to experiment and invent their own works of art.   We want pupils to develop their ability, nurture their talent and interests and express their ideas and thoughts about the world, as well as learning about Art and artists across cultures and through History.

 

The scheme of work enables pupils to meet the end of key stage attainment targets in the national curriculum.   Each school year is designed to cover three Art and Design lessons.   It is acknowledged that teachers will only teach Art and Design within the designated term.

 

Implementation

 

The Art and Design national curriculum outlines the four main stages:

 

  1. Drawing
  2. Painting and mixed-media
  3. Sculpture and 3D
  4. Craft and design 

 

Key skills are revisited with increasing complexity to allow pupils to revise and build on their previous learning.

 

Lessons are always practical in nature and encourage experimental and exploratory learning with pupils using sketchbooks to document their ideas.   Adapted guidance is available for every lesson to ensure that lessons can be accessed and enjoyed by all pupils and opportunities to stretch pupils’ learning are available when required.

 

Each lesson includes multiple teacher videos to develop subject knowledge and support ongoing CPD for staff.

 

Art and Design is timetabled in Barming Primary School to ensure tools or other resources are available to allow staff to implement the scheme of work.   This enables us to raise the quality of Art and Design in our school.

 

Impact

 

The impact of Kapow Primary’s scheme at Barming Primary can be constantly monitored through both formative and summative assessment opportunities.   Pupils should leave school equipped with a range of skills to enable them to succeed in their secondary education and be innovative and resourceful members of society.

 

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 ideas 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 artist and the historical and cultural development of their art.

 

Design and Technology

Intent

 

At Barming Primary School we follow the Kapow Primary’s Design and Technology scheme of work which aims to inspire pupils to be innovative and creative thinkers who have an appreciation for the product design cycle through ideation, creation and evaluation.   We want pupils to develop a confidence to take risks through drafting design concepts, modelling and testing and to be reflective learners who evaluate their work and the work of others.   Through the scheme of work, we aim to build an awareness of the impact of design and technology on our lives and encourage pupils to become resourceful, enterprising citizens who will have the skills to contribute to future design advancements.

 

The scheme of work enables pupils to meet the end of key stage attainment targets in the national curriculum.   Each school year is designed to cover three Design and Technology lessons.  It is acknowledged that teachers will only teach Design and Technology within the designated term.

 

Implementation

 

The Design and Technology national curriculum outlines the three main stages of the design process: design, make and evaluate.   Each stage of the design process is underpinned by technical knowledge which encompasses the contextual, historical and technical understanding required of each strand.   Cooking and nutrition focuses on specific principles, skills and techniques in food, including diet and seasonality.

 

Pupils respond to design briefs and scenarios developing mechanisms, structure, textiles, cooking and nutrition, electrical systems and the digital world.  Each of the key areas follows design, make and evaluate and has a particular theme and focus.

 

Lessons incorporate a range of teaching strategies from independent tasks, paired and group work including practical hands-on, computer-based and inventive tasks.   This variety means that lessons are engaging and appeal to those with a variety of learning styles.   Differentiated guidance is available for every lesson to ensure that lessons can be accessed by all pupils and opportunities to stretch pupils’ learning are available when required. 

 

Each lesson includes multiple teacher videos to develop subject knowledge and support ongoing CPD for staff.

 

Design and Technology is timetabled in Barming Primary School to ensure tools or other resources are available to allow staff to implement the scheme of work.   This enables us to raise the quality of design and technology in our school.

 

Impact

 

The impact of Kapow Primary’s scheme at Barming Primary School is monitored through both formative and summative assessment opportunities.   Pupils should leave school equipped with a range of skills to enable them to succeed in their secondary education and be innovative and resourceful members of society.

 

The expected impact of following the Kapow Primary Design and Technology scheme of work is that children will:

 

  • Understand the functional and aesthetic properties of a range of materials and resources.
  • Understand how to use and combine tools to carry out different processes for shaping, decorating and manufacturing products.
  • Build and apply a repertoire of skills, knowledge and understanding to produce high quality, innovative outcomes, including models, prototypes, CAD and products to fulfil the needs of users, clients and scenarios.
  • Understand and apply the principles of healthy eating, diets and recipes, including key processes, food groups and cooking equipment.
  • Have an appreciation for key individuals, inventions and events in history and of today that impact our world.
  • Recognise where our decisions can impact the wider world in terms of community, social and environmental issues.
  • Self-evaluate and reflect on learning at different stages and identify areas to improve.

We are creative!
