We had a fabulous response to this competition, seeing the Tour de Yorkshire really captured your imaginations! A very big thank you to all of the fabulous pupils and schools that sent entries to us. You made the judges job very difficult!
Our winning entry is from a year 3 pupil who attends Skipton Parish Church Of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School. The team is called Speeding Sharks!
I think you will all agree this is a perfect representation of the Tour de Yorkshire which gave Yorkshire an exciting and colourful weekend.
We would like to showcase some other fabulous entries that we believe deserve a well done!

For those of you who follow us on Twitter (@webanywhere_ltd) you’ll know that we held a webinar yesterday, Improving Literacy Skills Through Blogging, using the Bloganywhere app in School Jotter.
It was a 30-minute presentation and demonstration about using blogs in the classroom to create a buzz about literacy, and subsequently help improve pupil attainment.
Our e-learning expert Tracey Gentle took delegates through how you might use blogs with your pupils and eventually the wider school community, and how your school can set up free trials of the blog app. If you missed the webinar, we recorded it – and you can watch it here at your leisure.
If you have any questions regarding the apps we have available, or need help with parental engagement, just get in touch here.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a fabulous summer break and look forward to working with you all in September.
Blogging is becoming more and more popular in schools. At Webanywhere, we’ve often had teachers asking us if we could help them with creating blogs that their school could use. So, we’ve developed a brand new app, Bloganywhere, which makes creating blogs and writing blog posts easy for both pupils and teachers.
The Bloganywhere app is part of our Jotter Suite – which means pupils’ blogs can be accessed via one log in page within your school. We’re also developing the app so that, in the next month, it will allow you to post your school’s best blog posts direct to your School Jotter website.
Blogging itself ticks many curriculum boxes – from improving literacy and typing skills to encouraging online collaboration and reflection. Find out how your school can benefit from blogging by downloading our free guide, 7 Reasons Why Schools Should Blog here.
