Teachers at John Perry Primary School attend a dance workshop With national surveys showing that general levels of fitness and health amongst children are falling, schools are seeking ways to extend their provision of physical exercise.

At John Perry Primary school in Dagenham, they’ve identified dance as an area for development. To help them achieve their goal of improving dance at the school, they’ve invited Bobbie Gargrave – dance advisory teacher for Barking and Dagenham – to work with their teachers.

In this programme, we follow a dance workshop for all the teachers, which focuses on techniques and lesson-planning; and we revisit a Year 3 class as Bobbie works with the teacher to help develop her skills to become one of two planned post-holders.
