KS1/2 Dance - Improving Dance in Your School



In this programme, we follow a dance workshop for teachers at John Perry Primary School in Dagenham, which focuses on techniques and lesson-planning.

With national surveys showing that general levels of fitness and health amongst children are falling, schools are seeking ways to extend their provision of physical exercise.

John Perry Primary has identified dance as an area for development. To help achieve its goal of improving dance at the school, the school has invited Bobbie Gargrave, dance advisory teacher for Barking and Dagenham, to work with the teachers.

As well as teach the workshop, Bobbie works with the Year 3 teacher to help develop her skills to become one of two planned dance post-holders.
