The natural wonders of Blaenau Gwent will come to life on the Eisteddfod field this weekend as local children, in the company of Welsh poet and broadcaster - Caryl Parry Jones, will present poems about the natural wonders where they live.
During early summer, pupils from Brynmawr Foundation School and Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg spent time learning about local nature and the rich habitats that exist right on their doorstep.
Having learnt about local wildlife and conservation they returned to the classroom to begin their master pieces based on their own experiences.
Caryl Parry Jones said: "It's been fantastic to see them expressing such enthusiasm about their local environment - finding the right words to convey their feelings and letting their imaginations run wild!"
"It's a great way to build children's confidence and I'm sure they will enjoy reading their work aloud at the Eisteddfod to inspire others to visit the fantastic nature sites, which are a stone's throw from the Eisteddfod field."
Find out more by visiting the CCW stand at the Eisteddfod - number 225-226 and find out how you can explore and enjoy the Welsh countryside.
