Demonstration and written response: Dance creation

Summary of task

Students were involved in a 10-week HASS and HPE unit of work about celebrations around the world. The unit of work had a strong focus on working cooperatively in a group.

Students were asked to collaborate as a group to prepare a short performance consisting of fundamental movement skills. As a group, they created, practised, refined (after peer and teacher feedback) and performed a three-minute set of dance moves.

Students also completed a self- and peer reflection assessment rubric before and after the final performance. Formative assessment was based on quality of movement, extent of participation, demonstration of perseverance and how any challenges faced were dealt with. Students also created invitations for their performance.

This task relates to the focus areas: rhythmic and expressive activities, and fundamental movement skills.

They understand the benefits of being healthy and physically active. They describe the connections they have to their community and identify local resources to support their health, wellbeing, safety and physical activity.

Students apply strategies for working cooperatively and apply rules fairly. They use decision-making and problem-solving skills to select and demonstrate strategies that help them stay safe, healthy and active. They refine fundamental movement skills and apply movement concepts and strategies in a variety of physical activities and to solve movement challenges. They create and perform movement sequences using fundamental movement skills and the elements of movement.
