Primary School Project: Dance Discoveries
Dance Discoveries is a progamme for primary schools to support the delivery of dance in the curriculum by improving the quality of PE, raising achievement and encouraging more pupils to take part in physical activity.
Taught by specialist dance teachers, this whole-school programme supports students to make further discoveries about their learning and embed understanding of curriculum topics (such as science, maths or history) through a physical and creative approach. It will develop physical literacy whilst promoting a healthy lifestyle, embedding habits early on to encourage lifelong participation in physical activity.
Dance Discoveries will help to fulfil the requirements for the PE and Sports premium funding.
Dance Discoveries offers:
- Professional development for primary school teachers to increase confidence, knowledge and skills in teaching dance as part of PE.
- Curriculum dance projects helping to raise the profile of dance across the school as a tool for whole school improvement. By working alongside classroom teachers, our specialist dance teachers can improve the quality of your PE curriculum offer.
- A bespoke programme of professional development and curriculum projects to suit your school’s individual needs.
