Gymnastics Skill Descriptor (Years 7-11)

Gymnastics Skill Descriptor (Years 7-11)

How does the assessment rubric work? *Gymnastics Skill Descriptor * to be used for years 7-11. Produced in a user friendly format for both teachers and students alike. Accommodates both an attainment 8 format of assessment and (or) a sub level grading system. How does the assessment rubric work? •The difficulty of the skills are grouped from easy – hard. •The progress continuum along the left hand side indicates the main skills that each student at that age group should be able to perform. •The skill level number links to attainment 8 and should allow teachers to accurately calculate individual levels. Eg. Student ‘X’ in Year 7 is able to perform all the Year 7 skills in addition to 2 year 8 skills. His/ her level is therefore 4+4+4+4+4+5+5 /8= 4.4. From this you are able to see that this student is .4 above their expected grade level. • If using a sublevel grading system, the scores should be calculated using the following method. 1-2 skills from each table should result in a C or .3 being awarded e.g. If a student achieved 2 skills from the level 4 table, then their score is 4C or 4.3. If student is able to achieve 3-4 skills from a table, their score should be displayed as a B or .5. e.g. If a students achieved 4 skills from level 5 table, then their score should be displayed as 5B or 5.5. If all skills are achieved student should be award A or .8. e.g. a student who is able to perform all level 6 skills should be awarded a score of 6A or 6.8. Disclaimer Please note: Individual schools will have different demographics and cohorts. As such you may wish to change the grade boundaries/ expectations to make these more easily attainable or harder. This is done at the schools’ discretion. Furthermore, you may find that some students may not be able to perform all of their expected levels but yet still achieve 1 or 2 skills from other areas. This is unavoidable and as such requires you to use your professional judgement as to award the correct level. Like all assessment tools, this is fluid and can be adapted as and when you feel the need to.

NEW GCSE Dance Terminology test/quiz

NEW GCSE Dance Terminology test/quiz

Within the new GCSE Dance specification, the students require a wide range of knowledge which in turn demands the initial understanding of specific terminology with many different catergories address in the specification content, for example physical skills, choreographic devices, aural setting, performance environment, safe practice etc. This powerpoint lists all the categories and topic that are covered in the 40% written component and can be used as a game/quiz as each heading appears first giving time for students to either, call out for points, discuss with partner, or just work independently to formulate a list in response. Great light revision activity for those final days leading up to the written exam.

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.

Foundation Phase Line Dance Planning

Foundation Phase Line Dance Planning

A sequence of 6 lessons teaching some basic line dance steps with links to videos included. Welsh curriculum links included. I plan to use this with my reception class (perhaps a bit optimistic!) but more time can always be spent reinforcing the steps learned. There are two complete dances covered (3 lessons per dance) but a single dance could be stretched across 6 lessons if more practice is needed. Different songs can of course be used however I have chosen Ghostbusters OR I Like To Move It for the first (similar tempo) and Cotton Eyed Joe for the second. Line dancing for kids. Kindergarten, reception, year 1, year 2, year 3

4 KS2 Tribal Dance lessons

4 KS2 Tribal Dance lessons

Four lessons for KS2 students using the theme of Tribal Dance - linking to the Haka and African dance. The lessons come in a simple step-by-step format with the first exploring different formations & analysing the types of action typically found in traditional tribal dances like the Haka. The following lesson uses Question & Answer to communicate the competitive situation. The third lesson uses contrast and complement to create a battle & the final lesson reflects celebratory dances of Africa. All the lessons come with a suggestion for the music that could be used and they can be linked to create a narrative dance. There are links to examples on YouTube to help you illustrate the cultural links - but the lessons do not require the teacher to dance - but please feel free to do so if you feel confident!
