GCSE Dance Set Phrase progress booklet - Shift

GCSE Dance Set Phrase progress booklet - Shift

This booklet was designed to be completed as an ongoing document. As students learn the set phrase they could watch back their performance and complete the middle section of tick box reviews (created using the AQA description sheet and by watching the AQA videos in detail). This booklet is also excellent for showing progress because the middle column can be completed again (right side tick boxes) at a later date in order to show improvement. The booklet includes a break down for each count of eight with pictures and descriptions as well as a reflective page for each section. The final page can also act as evidence of teacher and peer assessment throughout the process.

KS3 Dance Year 7 ‘Rock and Roll’ New and Improved 6 lesson SOW and delivery PowerPoint

KS3 Dance Year 7 ‘Rock and Roll’ New and Improved 6 lesson SOW and delivery PowerPoint

This ‘Rock and Roll’ New and Improved 6 lesson SOW and delivery PowerPoint is for teachers teaching year KS3 dance (ideally year 7 after teaching ‘Intro to Dance’). This is a new and improved version of my previous ‘Rock and Roll’ resource. With this resource comes much improved starter activities emphasising on dance skills and terminology, instructions of how to perform the rock and roll actions, a fresh look and different YouTube clips. Purpose: This is a fun and energetic SOW designed for pupils to have fun while learning performance, choreography and appreciation skills through the Rock and Roll dance style. Pupils will gain and develop basic performance skills through working in pairs to perform a set 16 count hand jive and other Rock and Roll actions: gallops, turns, pancake roll, spring back steps and a side lift. Working in their pairs, students will gain and develop basic choreography skills through the creation of their own 16 count hand jive and their own rock and roll sequence that includes a lift. Appreciation skills are weaved through the SOL during discussion tasks for example, after watching YouTube clips of other dancers performing in a rock and roll dance style. Structure heavily features in this SOW as the completed Rock and Roll dance is structured in a rondo form. Within lessons 3 to 6 there is a strong emphasis on safety when performing lifts as this is the first SOW where pupils will be introduced to lifts. Throughout the SOW pupils will have the opportunity to view each other’s work and provide feedback to improve their own and other’s work. Includes: Detailed 6 lesson (60 min lessons) SOW with: aims, learning outcomes, time scale, resources, key words, level descriptors, lesson calendar, lesson objectives, starter activities (bell tasks), main activities, skills, assessment for learning, differentiation and homework. 6 lesson (60 min per lesson) delivery PowerPoint with: lesson objectives, starter (bell activities), main tasks, talking points, success criteria, YouTube clips, level descriptors etc.

Purpose: This SOW is to be taught right at the beginning of Year 7. Lesson 1 is designed to inform pupils of the dance studio rules and what to expect from their secondary school performance lessons. Throughout this SOW, pupils will gain and develop basic performance skills through working as a whole class to perform a teacher taught phrase that consists of the different dance body actions: jump/elevation, turn, gesture, stillness/balance, travel and transfer of weight. Working in small groups, students will gain and develop basic choreography skills through the creation of their own phrase using the knowledge gained through the performance task and will have the opportunity to view each other’s work and provide feedback to improve their own and other’s work. Throughout this SOL there is an emphasis on safety in the dance studio where pupils will develop knowledge and understanding of basic health and safety requirements for dance.

Full 30 minute playscript of 'Pippa the Pirate Fights Plastic'

Full 30 minute playscript of 'Pippa the Pirate Fights Plastic'

This is a 30 minute play based on a pirate who becomes famous for fighting plastic pollution. I wrote and produced this play with lower and upper key stage 2 children, who managed the lines and stage directions well. I have adapted the play with current themes and there’s a host of characters who explain how plastic effects their lives in terms which can be understood from foundation stage. There are other themes including friendship and ‘being kind’ as well as a catchy recycle song. I give permission for character genders to be changed to suit your cast.

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.
