Letters of Lockdown
Fantasic For Families
  • The Time Travel Club, The National Archives

Welcome to the Time Travel Club’s version of ‘Letters of Lockdown’. We would like you to contribute to our project by writing your own letters in response to the archive documents and your experiences of lockdown.

These special letters from The National Archives’ collection cover the themes of separation, kindness, strength and hope. We will provide an image of the real letter as well as background information about it with letter-writing prompts to help inspire your own writing.

Letters can be a wonderful way of connecting with people you miss, whilst you cannot see them so easily. Imagine the sound of a letter dropping through the door, or the excitement of opening your letterbox to find something inside.

Suggested age-range is 8-11s, but we welcome submissions from children of all ages!

Letters can be a wonderful way of connecting with people you miss, whilst you cannot see them so easily. Imagine the sound of a letter dropping through the door, or the excitement of opening your letterbox to find something inside.

'Letters of Lockdown' is an activity which can be completed with letters written jointly by all members of the family, or with separate entries.  It seeks to capture a whole range of experiences of lockdown, and provides an opportunity to practice handwriting and vocabulary skills in an informal and creative way.
