Dance lesson plan based on Chinese New Year

A single dance lesson plan what would be suitable for upper ks1 or lower ks2.

The lesson introduces the animals involved in the traditional story & how they move - then it progresses to use ‘the race’ to identify which order the years appear in the Chinese calendar.

The plan could be easily split into 2, if your lessons are short or your children are younger.

Each section of the lesson comes with hints & suggestions to enable you to deliver it successfully as well as the key skill being developed at that stage. Further to this there is a recommended piece of music that should be easily accessible through platforms such as iTunes, Spotify or YouTube
