Opportunities to teach reading creatively across the curriculum should be embraced where possible. At our school, one such opportunity has been found via the Royal Opera House’s Create & Dance programme. Launched in 2015, Create & Dance is a creative learning programme for key stage 1, 2, and 3 teachers that supports an inclusive approach to teaching dance and story-telling.

Part of the Royal Opera House’s free online Schools Site, the programme aims to “develop children’s understanding of dance and the wider curriculum, inspiring their creativity”. Usefully, teachers do not need previous dance knowledge to take part!
