Using Time to Move
Time to Move
is a dance series for Key Stage 1 pupils that can help you deliver the objectives of the National Curriculum at Key Stage 1 for PE
. The series needs plenty of space. The hall or a cleared and swept classroom or similar large space is ideal.
Use the best equipment that the school has for playback. Check that the loudspeakers are facing the children to ensure the best possible listening environment.
Make sure the children dance in gym shoes or bare feet. Bare feet give a good sense of contact with the floor, if your floor is safe. The children should be in PE kit to allow easy movement and to ensure that they do not become too hot. Encourage the children to listen carefully right from the start - not just to the presenter but also to the music.
