Certificate of Participation Recognising Fochriw Primary School's Participation in Eco Schools 25th Anniversary
Wales 2050 - FOCHRIW PRIMARY SCHOOL (A film in response to the WG request for schools to consider Wales in the Future).
What better way to explore the New Curriculum through these authentic learning experiences. The children used their digital skills across Areas of Learning to consider the challenges that face humanity. They thought about creative, ethical, informed and sustainable actions. They demonstrated they were ambitious, capable learners and showed character filming in the blustery conditions in their community of Fochriw and surrounding Darran Valley! We are incredibly proud of the amount of work, thought (and additional input from the Eco-Committee carrying out research in their own time) put into this film!
