Design A Teddy Bear Competition

John Lewis and Waitrose have launched a competition to find a superhero teddy bear, and they need your help designing it. The winning teddy will be sold in John Lewis and Waitrose shops later this year, with 100% of the profits going to the NHS.


In honour of our incredible carers at the NHS, we need designs for superhero-themed bears – don’t feel like you have to stick to the traditional brown bear – we want to see all kinds of super teddies.
Try and incorporate unique elements through colours, patterns, capes, masks – whatever feels exciting for you, but please avoid using any recognisable icons in your designs, such as the ‘NHS’ lettering or Superman logos.
If you need a bit of help getting started, then please download the teddy bear drawing template here.


Share your superhero teddy bear design with us by 5pm on 8 May 2020. An adult over the age of 18 should submit a photo of your design by email to 

Remember to submit a photo here as well so we can share your design on the blog. Use the Homework Uploader  or email the school office for the attention  of Miss Coleman. Good luck!

    Thank you Maryana and good luck! I like the matching face mask-this is very appropriate for a teddy at this time.
