Introduction to Kapow Primary: Computing

Transitioning to Kapow Primary

A suggested plan for each year group to help staff and pupils smoothly transition to our Computing scheme. All year groups have two catch-up units (except Year 2) to build a solid foundation of essential knowledge and skills before proceeding to our intended units and lessons for the year group.

Our approach

  • Authored by primary computing specialists using free readily-available software
  • In-built CPD for teachers: learn as you plan
  • A full scheme of work, easily adaptable to your teaching needs
  • Clear progression of skills and learning throughout EYFS, KS1 & KS2
  • Relevant cross-curricular opportunities
  • Content mapped to Education for a Connected World framework

Coming soon

  • We are refreshing and streamlining all our lessons over the next twelve months to add greater support for less confident teachers. Spring 1 lessons will be available in this format by the end of 2021
  • New and improved "Condensed Curriculum" guidance (Spring Term)
  • New CPD videos to support teachers with the coding component of the national curriculum

What others say...

So glad we found Kapow computing! It has great lesson plans and resources that even technophobe teachers are happy to follow. It was great to find an affordable scheme that did not rely heavily on one type of hardware (eg iPads) but that offers full flexibility.

 

Computing

I love the ideas Kapow have given me to further develop Computing teaching in my school!

Thomas Pitts

These plans are really good, they stretch the children and also are modern and relevant. They are easy to teach. We loved the IOT work and have now passed our ideas for a SMART classroom on to our school council.
