What are you doing every day?
What is it like being at home all the time without seeing your friends and extended family?
Are you having to go to school, and, if so, is it strangely quiet?
How are your family coping with working at home or going out to do essential work
Above all, tell the future children what you are missing most and enjoying most!
Please include a drawing, showing how life looks to you at this strange time in history!
All letters will be included in the ‘Letter to Future Children’ Archive and preserved for future generations to read. The winner will receive a prize of a £20 Amazon Voucher and have their letter shared online.
