Year 1/2 Dance planning (Jungle animal theme)

Year 1/2 Dance planning (Jungle animal theme)

Included in this pack is a 4 week lesson plan which is broken into separate lessons, resulting in groups of children to create a dance to the jungle theme music. Each lesson includes objectives, teaching and assessment points. Warm up song 'Walking in the Jungle' (This brilliant clip was found from the link below) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GoSq-yZcJ-4 Main jungle theme song (included in the pack), created by me (features animal jungle sounds) is to be used for the main dance. This dance topic is suitable for children from Early Years to Year 3. I have taught it with several year groups and they have thoroughly enjoyed it! It's great fun filming the finished dances and allowing the children to watch them back and give peer feedback. Please leave feedback if you purchase and use this resource. Thank you :)
