Desperatly seeking KS3 Dance SOW

Discussion in 'Drama and performing arts' started by disguise, Jul 15, 2011.

  1. Hi I am a CTL in Creative Arts who has a PE teacher next year teaching dance to yr 7. Neither of us have resources for this for various reasons and the only SOWs I can find are outdated and lacklustre. I desperatly need at least one SOW to give the PE teacher before we break up next week and have trauled the net but to no avail. It needs to be for year 7, assuming very little dance experience. Anyone got anything?

    Am posting this in Perf arts/PE/personal to cover all bases!
  2. I'm a drama teacher but remembered a site I had seen for dance. Have a look and see if there is anything useful.


    As I said this is not my area but just maybe something to get you started and give you some breathinmg space top plan for the year ahead.
    Good luck
  3. Thanks all, I too am drama hence my struggle.
  4. I'm a dance specialist and can rec' a SOW based on the All Blacks Haka. Kids love it as they get to scream , shout and move, PE teachers can do it( no offence) and you can tick cross curricular and citizenship boxes. There are some great you tube videos about the words and thatbteach you the movements. You can then get groups to devise their own School Haka using movements and have a face off competition.
  5. Do you know where I can get hold of this scheme?
  6. I am a dance specialist also. Best advice I could give you in check out the NDTA website. There is a fantastic book and DVD resource on there that contains schemes of work Y7-Y11. Its easy to follow and there are a range of topics. Check this link out: www.ndta.org.uk/publications see the 'pratical guide to teaching dance'

    Otherwise, become a member and log onto their forums and open up the archive of Dance Matters newsletter, lots of ideas on how to get Y7s moving on there!


    Hope this helps
  7. Thanks
