D&T is a difficult area for some schools to effectively deliver, simply because of the practical elements involved in the subject.

Kapow Primary’s scheme of work follows the tried-and-tested formula for success that has cemented its reputation for supporting teachers and helping them develop.

Authored by primary D&T specialists, the units are tailored to suit the target Key Stages. The topic content is based on the D&T Association’s ‘Projects on a Page’, providing pupils with a rich array of experiences and fully equipping them for secondary school.

The scheme of work can be easily adapted to your teaching needs, time and resources. The lessons are planned to promote clear progression of learning and relevant cross-curricular opportunities are highlighted throughout.

The scheme of learning comes with pre-planned lessons that consist of teacher video, student video, lesson plan and all of the required supporting resources.

This complete package means that workload is massively reduced.

In addition, you’ll receive a number of supplementary resources that allow tracking and discussion of the curriculum offer – especially helpful for inspections.

Key topic areas include cooking and nutrition, mechanical systems, textiles, electrical systems, structures and the digital world.

Throughout, learners are exposed to theoretical and practical elements of each topic and inspired to explore their interests and take risks.

The new Digital World units for KS2 teach pupils how to apply their understanding of programming to control and monitor products designed for specific purposes and develop 2D and 3D CAD skills.

Kapow Primary resources boast exceptional pedagogical understanding. The inclusion of actual teachers in the creation process is a huge positive. The resources ensure that learners have the freedom to explore, but are also encouraged to follow good study habits.

The introduction of knowledge organisers to this scheme of work (and their others) is a testament to the adaptability and forward thinking of the resource writers.

The full curriculum coverage is easy to access and the supporting videos are exceptional development resources for teachers.
