Kids of 2020 letter writing project

Write a diary

We've teamed up with Usborne Books and The Postal Museum to bring you the Kids of 2020 Letter Writing Project.

2020 was a significant year in our history and YOU were a part of it. We'd like to invite you to:

  • Write a letter to a child in 2030 telling them what life was like for you last year
  • Put it in the post to us.
  • Some of the letters will form part of an exhibition by The Postal Museum!

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • As you'll be writing to a child who is the same age as you, make sure you write about the sorts of things you like to read about, and make the style fun and engaging
  • Before you begin, use a sheet of paper to create a map of everything you'd like to say in your letter
  • When you're ready to start writing, use the template below to write your letter.
