1 Knowsley Approach to Dance Key Stages 1 & 2 Knowsley Approach to Dance Key Stages 1 & 2

2 Introduction Welcome to the Knowsley approach to dance for Key Stages 1 & 2. I hope you will enjoy using the scheme and that dance will become a fun area of PE to teach. This project has been devised and written by Rebound Dance & Health CIC as a guide for teachers delivering dance in the curriculum at primary level key stages 1&2. The overall aim is to provide essential information along with schemes of work to make dance in the curriculum more achievable to a none dance specialist. The Scheme The lesson plans will follow a basic structure of make – do- show or Plan - Perform – Evaluate. Each year group has 6 session plans. Session plan means that they should take more than one lesson to complete. They have suggested learning objectives, tips for success (teaching points), assessment pointers and an indicator of how the lesson splits up according to a multi-abilities framework (the green boxes). You may decide to use a few leaning objectives from one session in one lesson and cover the rest in the next lesson. They are not set in stone so be creative too! STEP – Space, Task, Equipment, People Each card also has STEP suggestions. These will help extend the lesson from one to the next, challenge more able students and give new ideas. When using STEP follow the format of the ‘Activities’ section using the ideas presented as the instructions. Multi-abilities These session plans incorporate the multi-ability framework to encourage an holistic physical education environment that caters for a full range of pupils' talents. The multi-ability framework supports inclusive opportunities for all pupils to be recognised and achieve within a range of physical education contexts. For example: Physical ability is pupil’s competence and fitness to perform a range of physical abilities. Social ability is exhibited in social contexts, and is the basis of leadership, teamwork Cognitive (thinking) ability is shown in planning and compositional settings Creative ability is evidenced when learners respond to challenges and tasks with fluency, originality and sensitivity to problems.

3 National Curriculum Requirements For Dance Dance at key stages 1 & 2 pupils are required to: KS1  Use Movements imaginatively, respond to stimuli including music and perform basic skills. To include, travelling, being still, making a shape, jumping, turning and gesturing.  Change rhythm, speed, level and direction of movement.  Create and perform dances using simple movement patterns including those from different times and cultures.  Express and communicate ideas and feelings. KS2  Create and perform dances using a range of movement patterns including those from a different times, places and cultures.  Respond to a range of stimuli and accompaniment. Prepared with information available from department of education for dance in PE last revised 2011

6 SAFETY TIPS FOR DANCE It is essential before any activity takes place to make sure the pupils are aware of safety issues relating to: The space - The room pupils dance in needs to be clean, warm and free of any clutter. When pupils arrive for the session ask them to sit at the front and play the ‘HOT SPOT’ game where they call out to the teacher any danger spots they can see. This way you make sure the participants are fully aware of the room they are dancing in. Personal space – when the group is ready to start moving in the room ask them to find a space on their own not to close to anyone else. Next ask them to lift their arms out to the sides at shoulder level and turn around on the spot slowly whilst being aware of other people in the room. Suitable clothing for dance - In most cases PE kit or loose fitting clothing like a tracksuit or shorts and T shirt is best. Pumps or bare feet is advised for footwear but we suggest pupils should not be allowed to wear socks due to slippery surfaces. Jewellery and accessories – To minimise the risk of accident and injury jewellery and watches should not be worn for dance activity.

7 ACTIONS: The six skills of travel, turn, jump, stillness, gesture and fall. BALANCE: To hold the body in any shape and try to evenly distribute the weight. CANON: An overlap in the dancers movements one after another similar to a Mexican wave. COOL DOWN:A relaxing end to the class to bring the heart rate back to normal. COMPOSITION:Organising and arranging sounds, words, movements and images into a unified whole. CHOREOGRAPHY: Art of arranging movements into a finished performance. FOCUS:The dancers sight line used to increase communication with the audience. GESTURE:Movements which do not move or bear weight. IMPROVISE:Unplanned exploration of movements. MOTIF:The central movement theme of the dance which is repeated and varied. STIMULUS:The starting point for your dance and basic theme. SECTION:A large separate part of the composition. WARM UP:Muscle preparation for exercise to avoid injury. DANCE TERMINOLOGY

8 PHRASE:A collection of movements put together based on any given theme either on the spot or travelling. HOP:To jump up and down on one foot and landing on the same foot. JUMP:To jump off 2 feet and land on 2 feet (2 to 2) LEAP:To jump from one foot and land on the other foot (1 to1) LEVELS:There are 5 levels to be aware of: 1. on the floor 2. Low to the ground 3. Mid height 4. High above the head 5. In the air or jumping. PATHWAYS:Possible directions in which to travel in the space. TRANSITIONS:Links between movement themes, motifs, phrases or actions. TRAVEL:To move across the room using steps and movements starting at one point in the space and arriving at another. UNISON:All dancers moving at the same time in the same direction together and in time. SOLO/ DUET/ TRIOHow many will dance 1,2 or 3 more than this is a small group more than 5 is a large group.

11 Cool Down Key stages 1&2 Find a space and lay down on the floor and close your eyes Play some calm music on a low volume and: *Breathe in for 4 – hold the breath – and slowly breathe out. *Bring the breathing back to normal and try to identify any areas of tension in the body, with each breath out allow that tension to slip away. *Use this time to think about all the things learned in the class, what was enjoyed most and what needs to be remembered for the next class. *Allow the class time to recover and just relax for 1 minute. Slowly sit up, have a stretch then slowly stand and stretch out again. Towards the end of each session the class should orally review/ evaluate the work they have created. In doing this we are allowing the heart rate to return to normal naturally. This section of the class is specifically for the mental and physical ‘cool down’ of the participants. The atmosphere should be peaceful and quiet.

19 Warm Up Safety first Remember to do a safety check first and talk through the possible danger hot spots in the space. Personal space When pupils are asked to find a space make sure they can stand with arms stretched out to the side and do a slow turn to ensure they have a clear space all around them. Counting the beats In dance we count up to 8 when we move around, this will make it easier to stay in time with the music and enables the dancers to keep in time with each other. Year 1 KS 1 warm up  In a space to start  Feel the heart beat – note how steady the heart rate is and ask children to describe what they feel.  Gently mobilise the head and neck by tilting chin to chest and then side to side in rhythm with music slowly.  Next stretch arms up to the sky lengthening the sides of the body then curl up in small ball close to the ground.  Walking on the spot then develop into a gentle jog on spot then jumping on spot.  Hop on one leg then the other.  Stop and feel your heart again and make a note of any difference and ask children to describe how they feel.  Shake out and stretch various body parts – bringing the breathing and heart rate back to normal.

20 SYMMETRY All of these shapes are symmetrical, this means they have lines of symmetry. Symmetrical shapes are of equal balance which means if you cut them down the middle they will be the same on both sides. This is an asymmetrical shape, this means it if you cut it down the middle it would be different on each side. Year 1 Dance Shape Shifter flash card

21 Creative Circles Flash Card F, KS 1 year 1  Body awareness  Mobilising joints  Responding to commands  creative improvisation Creative improvisation Circles and Body Parts On your instruction children should touch e.g. elbow, Head, nose, ear, knee, foot Staying on the spot ask children to draw a circle in the air with a finger. Next draw a circle in the air with their elbow then with their nose. Ask children to shout out some ideas of body parts and ask the group to have a go and try out suggestions. Now ask the group to think about timing and rhythm and ask them to clap 4 beats to some music. Try to keep in time with the rhythm. Next ask the group to draw circles in the air using the 4 count timing to music. Teacher to lead group and show 4 body parts drawing circles one after another keeping time to the music. This is your first creative motif made up from improvisation and it’s the starting point of your dance.

29 Warm Up A Safety first Remember to do a safety check first and talk through the possible danger hot spots in the space. Personal space When pupils are asked to find a space make sure they can stand with arms stretched out to the side and do a slow turn to ensure they have a clear space all around them. Counting the beats In dance we count up to 8 when we move around, this will make it easier to stay in time with the music and enables the dancers to keep in time with each other. Year 2 KS 1 warm up  In a space to start  Feel the heart beat – note how steady the heart rate is.  Traffic lights – A quick but effective warm up  RED – Freeze  AMBER – Walk  GREEN – Jog  BLUE – Allow someone to choose an action for blue each week. Continue with this game for 4 minutes  Back to a space  Feel heart beat and discuss the changes  Breath in arms go up  Breath out arms fall down ( do this 4 times slowly) Shake out and stretch various body parts – bringing the breathing and heart rate back to normal.
