KS4 GCSE Dance: Within Her Eyes 6 Week Delivery PowerPoint and Resources

KS4 GCSE Dance: Within Her Eyes 6 Week Delivery PowerPoint and Resources

This KS4 GCSE Dance: Within Her Eyes 6 Week delivery PowerPoint is for teachers of AQA GCSE Dance. It is designed to be taught in the 6th half term of Year 10 (after teaching Emancipation of Expressionism, Artificial Things, Shadows A Linha Curva and Infra) following the advice from AQA. It is to be used with AQA’s resources such as the Within Her Eyes fact file and video links. Within the 6 week delivery PowerPoint there are theory and practical lessons to explore the professional work of Within Her Eyes. Each lesson comes with lesson starters in the form of ‘bell activities’/’Talking Points’ and lesson objectives. Homework tasks and all resources needed for this PowerPoint are included. Although the main theme of this delivery PowerPoint is Within Her Eyes, this SOW also includes teaching the Shift set phrase. Please note that the anthology megamix that is mentioned in the SOW refers to an audio file (included) that is a mix of the music used in all 6 anthology pieces. In my previous SOW (Infra) pupils created a megamix dance that included key motifs from the anthology to help pupils remember them. In this SOW pupils create the last section (Within Her Eyes) – If you have not purchased my KS4 Infra SOW, you can simply use the Within Her Eyes section of the megamix to choreograph a short within Her Eyes piece in isolation from the megamix dance itself. Enjoy!

KS3 Dance Word Bank (Creating, Performing, Evaluating)

KS3 Dance Word Bank (Creating, Performing, Evaluating)

Best printed and laminated for use during performances and evaluation lessons. On one side is a basic word bank for students to choose from (to avoid them repeating the same thing that each group did well or need to improve), and on the other are sentence starters and connectives to develop vocabulary and use of full sentences when evaluating performances in class. Once the students get used to using them I found that performance feedback was much quicker and more valuable. I also have a drama one in my shop.

Colourful Dragon Rhymes - for all ages

Colourful Dragon Rhymes - for all ages

Ideal end-of-term fun for classes of all ages, with scope for physical movement and multi-arts development. Once there was a dragon dressed in red. He liked to stay all day in… - but you can guess the last word, and so can the children, although some may prefer to offer alternatives with other rhyming words. Red is just one example of the numerous colours featuring in these crazy dragon verses, which lend themselves to being enacted, and even sung to a made-up tune, as well as chanted and clapped. Follow on with dragon sketches or try my dragon’s menu for easy, crazy writing fun.

Sample Pages For The Clown Who Couldn't Smile

A short extract from the play The Clown Who Couldn’t Smile, which is a simple little one act play about happiness and friendship. Bonzo the clown has lost his smile and, despite lots of good advice, can’t get it back again. He’s in danger of being kicked out of the circus and - even worse - has been made to return to clown school! This is a great play for a large cast and is ideal for creating links with circus topics. These sample pages give you a taster of what the play is like and allow you to try before you buy!

A mini script based on the narrative poem ‘Matilda (who told lies and was burned to death)’ by Hilaire Belloc. This pack turns the poem into a mini performance, with the lines of the poem being narrated and broken up using improvised scenes, mime, and short role-plays.

Great for a quick end of term performance for friends and family. If you like this resource, please take a couple of minutes to leave a positive review. Thanks everso!

Great light revision activity for those final days leading up to the written exam.
