Earlier this year, Size of Wales launched a competition for primary schools across Wales to help raise awareness about rainforests and deforestation.
Schools were invited to make either a book or a video about deforestation, using resources from our website and everything they learned from our workshops. We received many brilliant entries from all corners of the country and were blown away by the knowledge and passion that went into making them.
For our video competition, the winners were Radyr Primary School in Cardiff who created three very strong entries.
Our judges loved the mixture of creative approaches, including how they used different formats, such as drama, animation and documentary, to tell their stories. They also showed an outstanding level of knowledge on the subject of deforestation and included suggestions for what we can all do to help. Da iawn Radyr Primary!
Also highly commended was this very creative effort by Ysgol Gronant in Prestatyn, called ‘Growing to the Future’:
For the book competition, the winner was Llanmartin Primary School in Newport, who exhibited much knowledge on rainforests and drew some fantastic pictures. Read a PDF of their book here.
Highly commended is this entry by Ysgol Tir Morfa Community Special School who were very creative in their story about deforestation and animals. Read a PDF of their book here.
We are grateful to all the schools for taking part and their amazing efforts to educate others on the dangers of deforestation and climate change. All of the entry videos can be found below playlist. Diolch yn fawr i chi gyd!
