Pembrokeshire has a fantastic and inspirational natural environment for children to discover. So for this year's Bilingual Children's Writing Competition, we are working in close conjunction with the Darwin Centre.
The topic for this year's competition is Pictures of Pembrokeshire. The Darwin Centre covers 4 main themes in its work, and stories may be written about any one of these themes.
We invited each of the four schools closest to Llangwm to submit a suggested story title for one of these themes:
Coasts - Don't Look Down
Suggested by Ben Cullen of Johnston Community Primary School
Minibeasts - The Mystical Magical Minibeast of Neyland Marina
Suggested by Haylea Germishuizen of Neyland Community School
Rivers - The Mystery of the Gurgling River
Suggested by Cherry Baum of Cleddau Reach VC Primary School
Rockpools - Seaside Circles
Suggested by Emily Holton of Hook Community Primary School
We would like to invite any child of primary school age to join in the fun and take part in this competition.
There will be four categories of entries:
Foundation Phase pupils Welsh
