Stamps of Approval

Senior School
5 Feb 21

The well-known artist and craftsman, William Morris would definitely have given his stamp of approval to the wonderful stamp designs that Year 5 has created.

After finding out about the Penny Black, commemorative stamps, the meaning of philately and the process of stamp design, Year 5 were confident using elements from William Morris’ famous designs to create their own original stamp design.

The result – first-class compositions capturing nature and colour. Did you know when designing a stamp there are only two rules; it must have the head of the queen or king and it must show the postage value. Year 5 have designed artworks that not only look good but also perform a function.
