Here’s a step by step guide for how you can get your hands on one.
Send your application letter and any other materials to the following address:
Alternatively, for a limited time, you can email your application and scanned documents to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thousands of children apply for badges each year and it can take up to 10 weeks for your badge to arrive, so please be patient! If you have any further questions, check out our badge Q&A pages.
Please note: Current UK government advice advises everyone to stay at home and so for the time being, you will not be able to visit Blue Peter Badge attractions.
‘What BP badge should you earn?
If you’re itching to get your hands on a Blue Peter badge, but don’t know where to start, this is the quiz for you! This quiz uses top of the range technology to decipher what BP badge is perfect for you.’
Click on the start at the top of the page and this will help you choose a badge to apply for.
To apply visit the Blue Peter link below and apply through their page.
There are eight badges you can earn…
Blue badges are awarded for sending in interesting letters, stories, pictures, poems, good ideas for the programme, and for having appeared on Blue Peter.
Once you’ve got a Blue badge you can apply for a Silver badge.
Green badges are awarded for sending in letters, pictures and makes that are about the environment, conservation or nature.
Silver badges are awarded to Blue badge holders who go on to make an extra effort. For example, if you won a Blue badge for an interesting letter or email, you could win a Silver badge by sending us something different such as a make, picture or a poem.
Fan Club badge
Purple Fan Club badges are awarded for joining the Blue Peter fan club and answering some questions about the show and the website.
The Music badge is a very special badge, designed by superstar Ed Sheeran. It’s awarded to those who show off their passion for music by learning a new instrument or being part of a musical performance.
The Sport badge is awarded for getting active and trying a sport or physical activity that you have never tried before. Each year a new limited edition badge is released that is only available during the summer. This means you can collect a new Sport badge every single year!
Applications for 2020 are open now and will close in late September 2020. Due to current circumstances, earning your Sport badge is a little different this year, so remember to read all the instructions.
Orange badges are given to winners and runners up of Blue Peter competitions. To have a chance of winning one of these badges you have to enter a Blue Peter competition, which only run during certain times in the year. For more information on competitions and whether a competition is open or not visit the competition page.
Gold badges are very rare indeed. Each year only a few are awarded in exceptional circumstances for outstanding achievements, for example being solely responsible for saving someone’s life, or showing amazing and unique bravery, courage and citizenship. (You must already have at least one of the other badges).
On very rare occasions, extraordinary adults can also be awarded a Gold Blue Peter badge. Recipients are high profile personalities who are considered to be role models, inspiring the nation’s children.
Watch Blue Peter live on Thursdays at 5:30pm on CBBC and iPlayer and join the Blue Peter Fan Club Live Chat every Thursday 5:30 – 6:30pm.
English – Learn how to use synonyms and antonyms.
Why are antonyms and synonyms useful?
Antonyms and synonyms are especially useful for story writing (narrative) as they help a writer to:
Two words are synonyms if their meanings are the same or similar.
Words such as:
rapid OR fast
road OR motorway
travel OR move
Two words are antonyms if their meanings are opposite.
Words such as:
fast OR slow
carefully OR carelessly

Maths – Learn how to multiply unit and non-unit fractions by an integer.
When you’re multiplying fractions by an integer (or a whole number) you multiply the numerator of the fraction by the whole number, whilst the denominator of the fraction stays the same.
Think about the following example.
If you have an apple and divide it into 8 equal parts or slices, you are dividing it into eighths (⅛). 8 eighths make a whole apple.
If you eat 5 slices of this apple throughout the day, what fraction of the apple have you eaten?
The equal parts that have been eaten are represented in yellow on the bar model above.
To calculate the fraction of the apple that has been eaten, you can add up all 5 parts.
⅛ + ⅛ + ⅛ + ⅛ + ⅛ = ⅝
You have eaten ⅝ of the apple. This method is called repeated addition.
You can also represent this through multiplication. You have eaten 5 slices of apple, and each slice of apple is ⅛ of the apple:
5 × ⅛ = ⅝
As you can see, the numerator (1) is multiplied by 5, but the denominator (8) stays the same.
English – To be able to use the suffixes -ous and -sion.
A suffix is a letter or a group of letters that can be added to the end of a word to change its meaning.
After completing the activities, if visit the link below you can access games linked to ‘ous’ and ‘sion’. This resource is available for free as part of BBC Bitesize Daily Lessons.
Maths – Learn how to add two fractions together.
Adding fractions with the same denominators doesn’t have to be complicated, so long as you remember the simple rule: only add the numerators.
When the denominators are the same number, you just keep it that way.
Hi everyone! Welcome back to your Art lessons online. I hope you have fun drawing along with the artist today.
In today’s lesson we are inspired by an artist who loves to draw and create little monsters. We are also going to learn a little bit more about the different type of colours and their names.
You don’t have to copy my drawings exactly, for this lesson if you want to change the colours on your colour wheel or how your monster looks that’s fine, it is your art! If you don’t have the same resources at home don’t worry, just use what you have.
In today’s lesson we are inspired by an artist who loves to draw his dreams, Salvador Dali. These pictures can look strange and sometimes very funny. I hope this lesson helps you to see the fun in Art and you can have a little giggle with as well!
You don’t have to copy the drawings exactly, for this lesson you might want to change the animal that you add your long legs too or maybe you want your animal to have long arms, it is your art!
If you don’t have the same resources at home don’t worry, just use what you have. You could even try and make your own.
I hope you have fun drawing and painting along with the artist.
In today’s lesson we are inspired by an illustrator who has drawn pictures for lots of children’s books. I think you might recognise some of them! It’s also a time for you to think about your dreams, big or small.
As we are staying in and staying safe, now might be the perfect time to think of something that you would love to do one day, or maybe even start on your dream today!
You don’t have to copy thedrawings exactly, for this lesson you might want to change the character and you will definitely want to add in your own dream, it is your art!
If you don’t have the same resources as the artist at home don’t worry, just use what you have. You could even try and make your own.
I hope you have fun drawing and painting along with the artist!
