Poppy Scotland’s Letters Home Competition

small-poppy-scotlandThis year Poppy Scotland’s competition is called Letters Home, the competition asks you to write a letter back to your folks at home as though you were a soldier fighting at The Somme.

Reflecting on what you have learnt about World War 1 and the Battle of the Somme, think about how you would describe your experiences, your feelings about the battle and the difficulties of the environment you are living in. Consider the power your words would have in describing how the conflict affected you and those all around you, but bear in mind the impact your words would have on those receiving the letter.

Further information on the competition and how to enter can be found at: http://learning.poppyscotland.org.uk/competition/

The closing date is December 2nd and the winner will receive a tablet with seven runners-up receiving a £30 book token courtesy of National Book Tokens.
