Cofia Pysgota is a Small World Theatre project that worked closely with a year 5/6 class in Ysgol Gynradd Aberteifi to research and create a film about the fishing industry in Cardigan Bay.
A creative approach to learning was used including role-play, brainstorming in groups, drawings and interviews. The children became film crews and researchers and interviewed fishermen, a fishmonger, 4CG (a community benefit society looking into establishing a fresh fish market in Cardigan) and Vox Pop interviews with the general public.
Their film provides an important component of this teaching resource for primary schools supporting learning about the fishing industry in Cardigan Bay.
Cofia Pysgota was supported by the Ceredigion Fisheries Local Action Group (FLAG).
