Science: Characteristics of Materials - Unit Overview

Science: Characteristics of Materials - Unit Overview

This unit of work, links with science, design and technology consists of a unit overview, five lesson plans and supporting flashcards which you can print of or use on your interactive whiteboard. The unit overview gives you a brief overview of each lesson, out lining learning objectives, key vocabulary and resources for each lesson. Each session is designed to last 45 minutes and are appropriate for ages 6-11. The lessons can be taught in the classroom or, preferably, in a hall, studio or similar type of space where children can move freely. As part of this unit of work, detailed lesson plans have been created to give you a tried and tested framework from which to teach which you can adapt it to your needs or that of your children. The framework is based around a warm up, building dance vocabulary, improvisation and creative tasks and developing performance skills. We hope you enjoy teaching this unit of work and always welcome feedback and ideas, so please get in touch with us.

KS3 Dance - Cog

KS3 Dance - Cog

Throughout this scheme pupils will be taught to compose, perform and appreciate differing varieties of dance. The scheme focuses on coordination of isolated body parts, such as arms and legs, when on the spot and traveling, interlocking with a partner and using physical manipulation to initiate actions that go up and down, around and around and side to side. Chorographically pupils will concentrate on spatial features, such as dimensional movement and contrasting pathways. Furthermore the cause and effect helps pupils build from solo work to duet, into small groups. Pupils will be expected to identify and describe key actions and dynamic, spatial and relationship features, making connection between what they will see in the “Cog” video to movements they learn, create and perform. Throughout this scheme of work pupils will be expected to draw links from the “Cog” stimuli to the wider social issue of “Friendship”. Pupils will discuss the meaning of friendship and what it takes to be a good friend - characteristics will be highlighted and explained. Cause and effect/chain reactions will serve as physical interpretations of a friendship break down. Pupils will be expected to explore their own friendships, discussing any challenging social issues they may have personally experienced.

KS3 Dance - Cyber

KS3 Dance - Cyber

Throughout this scheme pupils will be taught to compose, perform and appreciate variety of dance in relation to a Robotic stimuli. In particular pupils will be expected to respond to a stimuli, experimenting with the use of symbolic and representational movements, explore differing types of travelling and transitional pathways with a Cyber theme along with performance skills within their set motifs. Pupils will also develop movement though the use of Action, Spatial and Dynamic features.
