Working with up to 420 children to create and perform a School Poem in just one day! New for 2020, A Celebration in Rhyme has been developed to help celebrate the stories your pupils love in verse - by writing and performing a collaborative School Poem in just a single day! After a quick assembly sharing our love of poetry and issuing the overall challenge, children will participate in collaborative writing workshops, usually for a year group at a time. Using our unique “RunAround” methodology, KS2 classes will choose the themes and content, creating the lines as they go - with EYFS and KS1 providing the chorus. And the outcome? A beautifully crafted poem extolling the wonder of stories that’s unique to your school - and that will get its very first performance at a second, celebratory assembly at the end of the day!

The session will be led by Rachel Brewster-Wright, a photographer who uses traditional vintage techniques and processes in her work.

This network is for Arts Award Centres and Advisers and those interested in developing and supporting children and young people to achieve Arts Award, at all levels.

We would particularly like to engage Artsmark schools who are embedding/thinking about embedding Arts Award into their Artsmark plans. The network aims to establish and build on relationships between Advisers and those supporting Arts Award delivery, to enrich the arts and cultural offer for children and young people across Merseyside. We will be asking you regularly what your needs are and how you want the network to function. The network is a place to:
  • share best practice and hear how other Arts Award Centres are delivering Arts Award
  • build partnerships and develop new partnership projects
  • provide support, with opportunities to ask any burning Arts Award questions
