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.

Sherry Mata, Classroom Teacher: The twig science reporter addresses standards in just about every content area. The only barrier for more students experiencing it is the cost.
Kendra, Elementary Science Content Specialist: Great content and information, very appropriate for all elementary students. My kindergarteners love it as much as my 5th and 6th graders do. Thank you for this wonderful resource, and for making it free!!
Carrie Attell, 3rd grade teacher: I would give it a ten if it was as easy to access as last year. Last year I was able to post the link directly into Google Classroom, now kids have to sign up for it and many of them do not understand how to do this. Also, I am not sure they have easy access to it through their Twig accounts as I only see the teacher version.

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.

Videos

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.

Set Up

Dance Notes

For online download orders, the download link is sent immediately on purchase. The lesson download will take seconds and the music may take a few minutes, depending on the number of tracks in the lesson. Invoice orders are processed manually, so take a little longer. Printed materials are normally posted the next working day but may take up to a week, depending on demand.

Twig Science Reporter

Once we receive data from you or your IT Manager, we can have you up and running within 2 working days. Your choice between flat file data integration or data integration via your school or college's MIS will have an impact on the onboarding schedule. Everything will be explained in your first kick-off meeting in which we advise you to include all key stakeholders, including your IT Manager, for maximum success.
