Hero Stamp Design Competition…Who is YOUR hero?

Here is just a small selection of the sensational stamps that the children created.

Our school is delighted to be taking part in Royal Mail’s Heroes Stamp Design Competition,
honouring the heroes of the coronavirus pandemic.
Eight pupils from primary and secondary schools across the UK will become the designers
of this stamp set, and one could be a child from St Peter’s!


Key information:

  • Eight designs will be chosen for this stamp series from Royal Mail.
  • One of the designs could be yours.
  • Her Majesty The Queen will approve the winning stamp designs before they are printed and issued.
  • There are 120 great prizes on offer for area winners and runners up.
  • Plus, cash prizes for the winning schools too.

We will be designing and creating our stamps, in school, during our Art lessons.  However, there is nothing stopping you think about your stamp design and even having a practise at home.  Please feel free to bring any ideas and artwork, linked to this exciting competition, to your next art lesson

Who is your hero?

  • Have a think about the heroes over the past year.
  • Which hero or heroes will you honour on your stamp?

The design is completely your choice, but here are some ideas:

  • Captain Sir Tom Moore
  • NHS Staff
  • Teachers
  • Refuse Collectors
  • Cleaning Staff
  • Emergency Service
  • Delivery Drivers
  • Supermarket Workers
  • Public Transport Workers
  • Many other groups of people such as vaccine scientists, military personnel and food bank volunteers have also worked non-stop to keep the country moving.
  • A family member who has helped you.


Year 1 – Dr Seuss…..One fish, Two fish

We read the Dr Seuss book, One Fish, Two Fish……

……we then created our own fish, in the style of Dr Seuss, using chalk pastels and oil pastels.  Year 1 concentrated SO well and the finished work is splendid.
