Most Helpful Reviews

Dance Notes

Tim Robinson, Pe coordinator: Provides good lesson ideas, including warm ups and cool downs, building to a final piece at the end of the unit.
Karen Sullivan, Class Teacher and PE Subject Lead: Because I have subscribed using my money and not the schools I would recommend it but as a whole school PE approach
Ella Webb, class teacher: Great music. Activities are a good starting point. To be a 10, maybe some examples of shapes or videos of dances to inspire pupils or teachers who don't know what they don't know.

M. Kehlo, School librarian: I have been only been using it for a short while and so am not very familiar it with yet. I also do not feel competent to compare it with other available resources.
Cara De Aguiar, Grade Three Teacher: I think that this is a wonderful and child friendly set up for learners to gain knowledge and access to information. It is very easy to manage and has all the right tools for a child to fully engage in their learning. It is definitely user friendly and eye catching. I think it is a brilliant resource for the learners.
Suleiman Sadiq, E-Learning Coordinator/Teacher: The availability of resources and the frequency of resources updates on the platform

Most teachers download the resources, so need to have basic computer/internet literacy. They will need to be able to place the order, open the download, unzip the lesson files and store the music files for use within their lessons. Music may be streamed using links within the plan but many teachers ill transfer files to their own devices. Others will order CDs. To use a licence, they will need to provide a log-in and password, which is then usable throughout their staff. The lessons themselves are designed to be delivered by any teacher, with no need for specialist dance or PE training. We do, however, also offer CPD where required.

The Dance Notes schemes are designed to be pupil-led. This means that any teacher should be able to lead a class, with no specialist knowledge or instruction (beyond standard teacher training). A series of 6 videos is, however, available at the web site. These talk teachers through the progression of a typical Dance Notes plan and show pupils at work. Each is between 1:30 - 3:00 minutes in duration. In addition, each lesson plan includes a folder with supplementary teaching notes, to aid delivery of the lesson. These are also available individually, online, to licence holders. For teachers and schools that require more detailed help with their dance delivery and/or planning, we also offer CPD. This may take the form of an INSET day; twilight-sessions; or a whole term's delivery by a Dance Notes-approved teacher, working alongside school staff.
