The royal mail have set us the challenge of designing a stamp to honour our heroes! Read on to find out more….
Since the coronavirus pandemic began, there have been many people who have done great things. Many of them are not famous, but they have done extraordinary work. These are the people who have helped us all through a really difficult time. Some are frontline workers in healthcare, others look after elderly or vulnerable people. What these people have done makes them heroes, so Royal Mail wants to honour them by producing a set of eight stamps.
The stamps will feature designs created by eight school-aged children. Royal Mail are asking our young designers to think about who their hero or heroes are, and to then design a stamp in their honour. A special panel of judges will pick the winning designs. The final eight stamps will be sent to Her Majesty The Queen before they can be printed and issued.
If you would like to enter, you need to collect a worksheet from Mr Brotherhood, Ms Di Maria or Ms Bennett.
