  8. Hi,

    Don't know if anyone can help, but it's my first time teaching AS Dance, and Im struggling with lesson plans and notation.

    Does anyone have any examples of these for me??? They would be much appreciated!!!!!

  9. sarahtodd- can you please email me your lion king plans- I have tried to email you but it doesn't semm to have worked. Thanks-
  10. hello, just for a change I DON'T want a copy of the Harry Potter SoW! I teach Y9, 10 + 11 and they would think I'd gone mad :)

    A good place to start if you're stuck for ideas is to watch alot of dance (video's/dvd's) and borrow ideas from them. Also, I'd suggest looking at SoW from other subjects and looking at ways of making Dance cross-curricular, for instance Ludas dance company (dance made specifically for kids) has recently toured a piece about genetics, and being different from each other, what makes us different etc. Ludas do great workshops in schools and are always making something new for the stage.

    For video's/dvd's look at Richmond-Upon-Thames college website and follow the links for the video library. There is a yearly charge of about £170 for 12 rentals, but you do get to keep them.

    There is also a pretty good SoW on the QCA website, under PE. Top Tip - Dance is ususally always lumped with PE, so look there when searching for SoW.

    If you're new to teaching Dance, go on as many courses as possible. KeyNote do some good ones.

    Good Luck

    Miss Type

    Same here,
    2nd year of being sports -co-ordinator of a primary school of 400+ and trying to get staff to use more exciting stimulus rather than the LCP schemes as staff dont seem to be keen on using it - but it is the only thing we have in school! So if anyone is reading this and has fab schemes they wouldn't mind me having please can you email them to me at donnabennett103@hotmail.com
