KS4 GCSE Dance: Infra 6 Week delivery PowerPoint and Resources

KS4 GCSE Dance: Infra 6 Week delivery PowerPoint and Resources

This KS4 GCSE Dance: Infra 6 Week delivery PowerPoint is for teachers of AQA GCSE Dance. It is designed to be taught in the fifth half term of Year 10 (after teaching Emancipation of Expressionism, Artificial Things, Shadows and A Linha Curva) following the advice from AQA. It is to be used with AQA’s resources such as the Infra fact file and video links. Within the 6 week delivery PowerPoint there are theory and practical lessons to explore the professional work of Infra. 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 Infra, this SOW begins by teaching pupils a set phrase mega mix (music included) in which all sections of the dance anthology are represented (ignore the ‘Within Her Eyes’ music at the end of the mix. That comes later in the ‘Within Her Eyes SOW’). The point of this is to recap the 5 anthology dances studied so far, looking at the key motifs in each. Breathe is also introduced at the end of the SOW.

KS4 GCSE Dance Revision – Component 2: Choreographic Devices and Intent within the Anthology

This resource has been designed for teachers of GCSE dance revising choreographic devices and choreographic intent within the anthology, in preparation for the written exam. This lesson has been created to provide a way for dance students to revise in a fun and interactive way.

Discuss with each group how the choreographic devices relates to the choreographic intent of the piece.

KS4 GCSE Dance Revision – Component 2: Choreography

This resource has been designed for teachers of GCSE dance revising choreography in preparation for the written exam. This lesson has been created to provide a way for dance students to revise in a fun and interactive way. Prior to the lesson, decide how you are going to divide your class into 6 groups (ideally a mixture of high and low ability in each group). After the starter activity on the PowerPoint give each group one of the texts as a stimulus. As a group, pupils can discuss how the text can be used to create choreography in relation to each of the questions on the PowerPoint (I allowed around 3 min per slide). Encourage pupils to write notes on the sheet with the text on as these can be used as posters in the classroom and/or be photocopied and given to all students for further revision. After pupils have completed notes for each of the questions, give pupils a copy of the questions as a mock test and allow pupils 20 min to complete the test using their text as their stimulus. Within this resource I have included the notes that my pupils made as an example.

This lesson has been created to provide a way for dance students to revise in a fun and interactive way. Prior to the lesson, decide how you are going to divide your class into 6 groups (ideally a mixture of high and low ability in each group). Each group should be given a large piece of paper with one of the 6 dance anthology pieces written in the middle, then use the PowerPoint. I spent approximately 5 min per slide and got the pupils to rotate around the room rather than the paper. You will need the six anthology fact files found on the AQA GCSE Dance website for the latter part of the lesson. Once the lesson is complete you will have revision display posters created by the dance pupils themselves.

KS3 Dance ‘Hairspray’ 6 lesson SOW delivery PowerPoint

KS3 Dance ‘Hairspray’ 6 lesson SOW delivery PowerPoint

This ‘Hairspray’ 6 lesson SOW and delivery PowerPoint is for teachers teaching dance at KS3. In the school where I teach, every year we have a Year 9 musical (this year was Hairspray) and all the Year 8 pupils watch during a matinee performance. This SOW has been created for my Year 8 pupils after they have watched our Year 9 performance of Hairspray. The delivery PowerPoint includes questions which refer to the performance that they have watched and the whole point of the SOW is for them to learn the finale dance ‘You can’t Stop the Beat’. You may be thinking, ‘What am I going to do with this resource?’. Well, you’re going to need to adapt it to suit you yes but it will work in a variety of ways. First of all, it can be used as a tutorial of how to turn a series of rehearsals into a series of lessons (learning other key dance skills and terminology in the process). You could use It as a guide to create your own SOW for whatever musical your school has just put on or simply show a YouTube clip of a live performance of ‘You Can’t Stop The Beat’. We haven’t chosen next years musical yet but I will be using this SOL and will adapt it to fit. The delivery PowerPoint includes starters in the form of ‘bell activities’/‘talking points’ for each lesson, homework and assessment activities at week 3 and week 6 to record progress.

KS3 Dance Pirates Scheme of Work

This is a dance scheme of work using the theme of Pirates. It uses the themes of “water”, explores the shape of the ship, the characters on board, pirate activities, sword fighting and performance skills. There are detailed lesson plans with worksheets for reflective practice. There are suggestions for music and diagrams to help with staging whole class sections. When I did this, we were 1:1 Chromebooks, so students created an online blog to write a diary of their creative progress, but with could be done with a physical booklet instead. This scheme of work could possibly be used for Years 5, 6, 7 and 8, depending upon the student maturity, or where they are in the year.
