KS1 Leaders Awards Winners 2019

KS1 Leaders Awards Winners 2019

22 Jul 2019

This year’s Leaders Award SouthWest concluded on 14th of June with an Awards show at UWE Bristol. Here is one of two posts shouting about the amazing inventions of primary school children, all designed to solve the world’s problems.

Many noted that inventions from the younger minds were the most out-of-the-box, so have a read of the ingenious ideas from the KS1 winners of the Leaders Award. My favourite is the Magneticopter.

Reception winners


  • Ella-May Bennellick from St. Catherine’s C of E School (Launceston) has designed the Clock With Guide of the Day – the clock will prevent you from ever being late for school and helps with telling time.
  • Ollie Spencer from Westbury on Trym Academy has designed the Step Counting Shoes. The shoes will count all your steps and help to continue being active.

Year 1 winners






  • Kai Williamson from Deerhurst and Apperley C of E Primary School has designed the Plant of the World which is a house that generates fuel from propeller motion. This would help prevent the world from running out of fuel.
  • Tristan Sta Ines from Headley Park Primary School has designed Rain Catcher. The design’s purpose is to catch the rain which then turns into clean water. This benefits all the people who are thirsty and helps to keep them healthy.

Year 2 winners


  • Eli Kelly from Hillcrest Primary School has designed the Anti-Fat Quick Shop Trolley. The invention will help to keep people fit whilst shopping. It has a treadmill attached so when you shop, you will also become fit. The power created whilst in use helps to recharge the trolley.
  • Tommaso Embrey from West Town Lane Academy has designed the Magneticopter. The copter provides assistance in an accident by locating the vehicle in the crash, grabbing it by its powerful magnet and removing it from the scene to clear up traffic jams.
