At Beaufort Primary School we use Kapow to ensure our curriculum...

  • Is designed to focus on the main historical concepts that pupils need to learn and remember. It is also true to the national curriculum for both Key Stages 1 and 2.
  • Ensures full coverage of the National Curriculum is met.
  • Has a high focus on reading, writing, mathematics, PSHE, religious education, physical education and a foreign language.
  • Is designed to give a metacognitive approach to leaning a knowledge rich curriculum.
  • Is underpinned by our British values, equalities, school ethos and the need to build cultural capital for all our pupils.

Key principles underpinning our curriculum:

  • Children knowing and remembering 'sticky' knowledge
  • Make explicit links and connections between subjects and real-life experiences.
  • Resource rich environment.
  • Children have an enthusiastic attitude towards history lessons and begin to ask and answer questions about the world around them.

 Sticky words are identified on a knowledge organiser, taught throughout a unit of work and referred to during the day. As a way of assessment, children are expected to apply these sticky words to their writing across the curriculum. If children use these words successfully, the use of gold star stamp is applied to their work. Sticky words are displayed within the classroom environment and used in all lessons to explain and retrieve definitions.
