Check out the video below for fresh ideas on leading a key stage 1 dance warm up – fun, accessible and full of beans!
Warm ups should last for 3-5 minutes, mobilise major joints and muscles and raise the heartbeat. They should also be appropriate to the main activity you are delivering, so include movements / concepts from your lesson plan into your warm up.
Please ensure the children are wearing kit and have jewellery removed. I normally dance in bare feet. Also make sure you have an appropriate space that has been risked assessed.
