Calling all kids!

Have you ever looked at the pictures on our money? What do you see?

Banknotes often include images of people, places and things we love and celebrate. From Shakespeare to machinery and flowers, you can tell a lot about the United Kingdom by looking at a banknote!

This half term, share your favourite things with us by designing a banknote which celebrates them. This might be a person, a hobby, a food, a pet – anything that makes you smile!
