  14. Hi all, i'm in a bit of a pickle time wise and am really desperate to receive the Harry Potter scheme of work. I have given my email, but have not received anything yet.

  17. Dear stressed,

    Hi there. Basically use your instincts. Think about their age and what they might have already done. Backtrtack to last years work if possible.

    Here are a couple of suggestions which I have used for a year three class:

    Get them to think about fast movements and slow ones. Then using music that is slow and fast get the chn to respond.
    Then play some music that is joyful and happy. Get the chn to think about a circus. What do you see there etc...The chn choose a type of act they would like to be. Create a sense of arriving into town, setting up the big top then they perform their acts in groups or pairs to the others, take the big top down and leave the town. Encourage them to be expressive.

    Then ask chn how to make it better and try out their ideas.

    Second: Some teachers create their own routines and teach it to the chn who then teach each other. I personally have not had chn trained enough to do this.

    Third: Teach the chn basic steps like galloping, jumping, rolling, and encourage them to put them together, fast or slow depending on the style of music. Basically like a gym lesson. This has worked well and is less teacher led.

    I hope that this has helped......Just remember be confident and they will believe that you can do this....
