The Resilience Quest
PSHE, Wellbeing, Mental Health, COVID-19
Age Group: 7-11
A Theatre In Education workshop for children exploring social, emotional and creative resilience.
We are working with young actors from the Birmingham Conservatoire on a new project that examines the challenges faced by primary aged children over the past year and on returning to school. Children have reported feeling isolated and unmotivated. Many have struggled to regulate their emotions and reconnect with their peers.
In response to this we have created The Resilience Quest, a 90 minute adventure drama for children. The Resilience Quest will transport participants into a world of myths and legends, of questioning and curiosity. They will play a crucial part in helping the hero and heroine of our tale overcome challenges on their journey into the unknown.
Children will be introduced to strategies and behaviours to help them develop greater resilience, so they can:
Cope with their emotions.
Seek support from peers and adults in their lives.
Be helpful to others.
Find meaning in their experiences
Identify healthy strategies to deal with adversity.
Teachers will receive follow up lesson plans to continue exploring the themes of the drama with their class after our visit.
Live Workshop Social Distancing Measures:
This workshop involves 2 facilitators. During the workshop the facilitators will not have any physical contact with the children and will remain 2 metres from the participants at all times. Children will not be asked to handle props.
Each child will be sat in their own designated safe space to watch and participate unless advised otherwise by the school.
For more details on our Safety Measures and Social Distancing Policy, see here.
