During the summer term, we posted how you could earn yourself a Blue Peter Badge. The teachers applied for the key worker children who were in school during lockdown while at home we posted weekly activities which you could complete in order to earn a badge. See link below
The badges were for children aged 6+
After speaking to a number of parents and careers, I can confirm the Blue Peter Badges have started to come in!
I would like the say a well done to all if you have received a badge or applied. If you can send an image of your child with their badge to email@example.com we can celebrate together the achievements during lockdown. There is a 14 week wait for badges as so many children applied.
Read details below:
Every week for 6 weeks, during the summer term, I posted a range of activities to complete to earn a Blue Peter Badge.
The iconic Blue Badge – Blue Peter fans can earn one of these by sending in a letter or picture; you could make a rainbow for the NHS, create your very own ‘thank you’ jar, or even make a delicious bake to show your appreciation for a friend, family member or neighbour!
Silver Badge – If you already have your Blue Badge, do something different, have a midnight feast, or discover awesome kitchen science. Tell us what you’re proud of doing and apply for your Blue Peter Silver Badge.
Green Badge – This one’s all about the environment. If you’re passionate about the planet, why not try planting a seed, making a bug hotel or bird feeder, creating a window box garden or looking out of your window to see all the different types of wildlife you’re able to spot? Write in or send a picture about how green you are to apply.
Purple Fan Club Badge – Fancy yourself a Blue Peter superfan? Then this badge is for you! To get your hands on one of these, join the Blue Peter fan club, fill in the form and tell us what you’d like to see in the show and makes you a Super fan when you apply for your Blue Peter Purple Fan Club Badge.
Music Badge – Are you all about the music? If so, why not see if you can earn yourself a Blue Peter Music Badge? This one was designed by the one and only Ed Sheeran and you can earn one by picking up a musical instrument, creating a playlist of musical memories or sharing your favourite songs of all time. Fill in the form and include a picture and apply for your Blue Peter Music Badge.
Sport badge – The Sport badge is awarded to those who’ve found new ways to get active. You can hold a DIY sports day in your garden or at the park, set up an awesome obstacle course, complete a skipping challenge, or try out a totally new sport you’ve never heard of before! Fill in the form and include a picture to tell Blue Peter how you’ve been sporty to earn your Blue Peter Sport Badge.
Now to follow on the 6 badges of summer. Blue peter have another competition- the gaming competition.

All you need to do is record a video of yourself talking about something you really love, design a character skin and tell us about them and the world they live in.
