Rhythm & Rise Summer School, Year 6 Looked After Children
A four day summer school designed to use the arts to build resilience in Year 6 Looked After Children and give them skills to cope with their transition to secondary school.
Over the four days we created a ‘musical’ about new adventures. Using the stimulus ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ we created our own fictional adventure and had conversations about overcoming challenges.
The young people created all of the artwork, lyrics for songs and dances for their ‘musical’ style production which they performed at the end of the week to all the carers, and social workers.
