- Spatial awareness, dance elements (such as time) travelling, counting beats, simple sequences use specific steps to travel in a set direction such as marching forwards 8 counts. Combine dance sequences such as performing movement 1 then adding movement 2.
- Counting beats within different metres, tempos, groupings, patterns and algebra, sequences and structures. Step to the beat and then create movement sequences in duple, triple, quadruple metre. Perform set steps to a variety of tempos (speeds) such as in Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody'. Repeat a particular step as a pattern or repeat a combination of steps as a larger pattern.
- Additive steps and sequences such as expanding, condensing, retrograde, inversions and repetition. Use a variety of patterns as sequences and ways of composing dances. Repetition involves repeating a sequence. Inverts steps, use retrograde (backwards steps), expand steps or condense them.
- Analyse routines and dance sequences then turn findings into graphs. Map out and block dance sequences through movement diagrams or maps.
Numeracy in the creative arts
The numeracy of the creative arts video (3 minutes 38 seconds) describes the researched ways in which numeracy is and can be embedded through all aspects of the creative arts.
The numeracy infographics provide clear and explicit teaching and learning activities.
