All students in key stage 3 will study dance as part of the Physical Education curriculum where they will have two lessons a week for five weeks. The schemes of work in Dance allow students to explore movement in a fun and challenging way, providing the opportunity to work both collaboratively and independently and engage in teacher, peer and self-evaluation. Students will develop knowledge and understanding in performing, choreographing and appreciation, building a great foundation for those wishing to further their studies in dance at GCSE.
