World Book Day 2021 Competition –
Design a New PTS Bookmark

Happy World Book Day 2021! To help you and your class celebrate this great annual event, we have a brilliant competition.

We’re looking for new designs for PTS bookmarks, and we need your help. We’d love your pupils to get creative and send us their designs using the template download below.

Two winners will see their designs become genuine PTS bookmarks, as well as receiving the following prizes:

For the pupil:

  • £50 book token
  • £100 donation to a charity of their choice

For the school:

  • 100 of the winning bookmarks
  • £100 worth of PTS products

Five runners up will win a £20 book token.

Download the bookmark competition template below, ask your learners to create their design, choose your favourite three and send your top three only to

Entry is by email only, please attach a scanned or photographed image of your pupils’ completed designs.

The bookmarks should be usable in the classroom either as a reward or as a quick reference to support your learners. But most importantly, pupils must design a bookmark that they would love to receive from you, their teacher.

Please encourage your learners to create original characters and designs, as unfortunately, we will not be able to use designs including famous characters for rights reasons.

New Eco Write and Wipe Whiteboards – When the time came to restock our popular write and wipe whiteboards, we decided to investigate whether we could find a greener solution than the plastic boards we had traditionally stocked.

Socially Distanced School Assemblies – Social distancing has put a huge pressure on both school staff and pupils, preventing schools gathering together outside of classroom bubbles. It has become almost impossible for traditional school assemblies to go ahead. But of course, teachers and school leaders are a creative bunch, and many schools have come up with unique ideas for socially distanced school assemblies.
