If you feel inspired to create some artwork at home then why not design some posters showing that you support our wonderful NHS staff?

Many children throughout the country are creating rainbow posters and placing them in their windows. The idea is help key workers be happy on their way to work each morning.

Think about adding a rainbow to your design. This is a symbol that many children are using to show that they support the brave NHS staff who work in our hospitals.

We would love to share any of your posters on the Michael Faraday School website! You can scan in your poster, or take a photo of it with a phone, and then upload using the box below.
