Your child can win a £10/€10 National Book Token for each of their classmates
Encourage your children to create a fabulous National Book Token design and they could return to school with National Book Tokens for all! Whether it’s their school crest doodled in ink, a pencil drawing of the entire class, or something completely different, we’ll choose one child’s design to put on a National Book Tokens gift card every week for seven weeks.
The young designer and their classmates will each receive a £10/€10 National Book Token – emblazoned with the winning artwork – to inspire them to choose their next favourite book from their local bookshop.
Closing date 28th June
We are inviting children to take part in a survey about their thoughts and experiences of the coronavirus pandemic. We aim to raise awareness of children’s views and to help influence how we as a society move forward in the wake of the pandemic.
The survey invites children to answer some questions about their views and experiences of the coronavirus. There is also a creative task, whereby children are invited to create a picture to reflect “The Coronavirus and My Life”. The picture is an optional part of the survey and you can also choose to do it at a later time.

This site was created for young people, carers and professionals to pool together lots of helpful resources from across the internet that are available to help support your mental health and well-being. I hope that you find it helpful.
Carol Ann Duffy and the Manchester Writing School at Manchester Metropolitan University have brought together poets from around the world to write new poems about the recent days past and the weeks ahead. The poets were invited to write directly about the Coronavirus pandemic or about the personal situation they find themselves in right now.
