Description

CPD:Dancing the Curriculum

Literacy: bringing words to life

Staff from primary schools in Tower Hamlets are invited to a dance and movement CPD day.

This session will cover how we can use movement to explore literacy and language themes. The session will explore ways in which learning in literacy - speaking, listening, reading and writing - can be enhanced through dance processes and vice versa.

You will get ideas on how to structure movement based sessions linked to a book, creative writing, teach dymanic qualities in text via movement and generally enhance the communication skills of your class through dance.

This session will be led by Green Candle Dance Company on behalf of the Tower Hamlets Dance Consortium, supported by THAMES and it will give participants a 'toolkit' to take back and use with their own classes and groups.

The session will include a mix of practical activities and discussion and will

  • Give you practical dance ideas for activities and methods on how to prepare and plan dance sessions for Primary that you can take straight back to school

  • Support you finding and choosing music and making use of props

  • Give you dance vocabulary and resources to make your lessons inclusive to all abilities including SEND students

  • Build confidence for teachers/TAs who are unfamiliar with delivering/supporting dance

  • Give you fun and accessible cross-curricular ideas

Please come prepared to move with appropriate clothing, as the day will be a mixture of movement and discussion.


In the summer term we will run another twilight session on Dancing History, exploring a topic via Dance.
