By Helen Howarth

This year’s autumn competition for school invited students in Key Stage 3 students (12-14 year olds) to think about the roles animals played in the First World War. They were asked either to write a 500 word extract from a book in which the animal tells its story or to design the cover of a book featuring a First World War animal. We received stories of dogs, pigeons, elephants, camels, cats, canaries and even glow worms and a rat!
