Calling all kids! We need your help designing a superhero-themed bear

Text © John Lewis Website

In honour of our incredible carers at the NHS, we need designs for superhero-themed bears – don’t feel like you have to stick to the traditional brown bear – we want to see all kinds of super teddies.

 

Try and incorporate unique elements through colours, patterns, capes, masks – whatever feels exciting for you, but please avoid using any recognisable icons in your designs, such as the ‘NHS’ lettering or Superman logos.

Coronavirus a book for children

By Elizabeth Jenner, Kate Wilson & Nia Roberts
Illustrated by Illustrated by Axel Scheffler

Text © Coronavirus a book for children

There’s a new word you might have heard. You might hear people talking about it or you might hear it on the news. This word is the reason that you’re not going to school. It is the reason you can’t go outside very often or visit your friends. It might be the reason why the grown-up or grown-ups who look after you are at home. The word is Coronavirus.

Coronavirus: supporting bereaved children and young people

Text © www.winstonswish.org

Everyone is talking about coronavirus and its impact. Adults are being encouraged to work from home, some schools are closing, children’s parties being cancelled and people are choosing to self-isolate and not see friends and relatives at this time.

All children will have questions about the effects of the virus but for children who have had someone important die or have a member of their family who is ill, this anxiety is likely to be heightened. Parents have been asking us how to reassure bereaved children and young people who are worried about the effect of this virus on their family.
