5 A Day Music – A Recovery Resource for Schools

We all have felt the effects of the pandemic – no more so than the children we teach. 5 A Day Music – A Recovery Resource for Schools is for teachers and schools to help with the recovery for students. This helpful document guides teachers through how to re-integrate creativity into their classroom, supporting the wellbeing of their students (and possibly themselves!)

Research has shown that 44% of children have decreased the amount of time they spent on hobbies and activities during lockdown

At Bristol Beacon we have undertaken research in this vital area and our 5 A Day Music – A Recovery Resource for Schools presents a guide for embedding mental health, wellbeing and recovery through the arts into children’s everyday learning spaces.

Take a look at our set of resources which are focussed around the themes of

  • Sing
  • Play
  • Move
  • Create
  • Listen

We’re changing

On Wednesday 23 September 2020 Colston Hall changed its name to Bristol Beacon, and this means we’re changing too.

Bristol Plays Music is run by Bristol Music Trust, the charity that also runs the venue formerly known as Colston Hall. These two organisations will soon unite under one name: Bristol Beacon.

Click below to find out more about how we’re changing, watch our name announcement, and discover how we want everyone to share in the joy of live music.
