Me and My Family |
Poetry Competition
| Reception

❤️ Me and My Family is a BRAND-NEW drawing competition for reception pupils, which invites your little artists to draw a picture of either one of their family members or their whole family! They can label their pictures too, so we know who has featured in their artwork.

🎨 Your pupils could draw a portrait of a family member, a party, a day out, or a celebration. Perhaps they share a hobby or interest with a family member that could feature in their picture... or maybe their family pet is the 'person' they'd like to draw!!

📕 Our favourite pictures will be published in the bright, colourful Me and My Family book series 

🖼️ Your pupils need to draw their entry on the Me and My Family entry form, keeping their art below the line as requested.

You can request as many entry forms as you need for your class using the resources tab on this page - we'll send as many as you need free of charge.

Get your reception pupils involved in Me and My Family today and they could be published artists! There are amazing school and pupil prizes up for grabs as well as stickers and certificates 😍

Closing Date: 22nd December 2023.

We've worked with over 20,000 schools. Here's what some of them have to say...

The children really enjoyed the freedom. Well resourced with PowerPoints to support.
