Dear Parents/Carers

I’m so excited to tell you about our flashy new website that has been created for us. It’s not live yet as there are a few things to do first, but we are aiming to launch it later this year. I have seen it for the first time today. It’s interactive and really user-friendly.

This is where you come in – to launch our new website, we want the children to design a character that will help us throughout our website. It could be an animal, human, plant, whatever you can think of! This is an exciting opportunity for someone in our school to leave a legacy for years to come. The graphic designers will then take the winning characters, create them digitally and pop our school uniform/logos on them.

To create a bit of a buzz about the idea, we want you to put your designs in your windows for all to see and send a photo in. Why not add a message about East Boldon Juniors’ new mascot too?

Excited? We are! The deadline for submission is Monday 22nd February. Send them in to me via Class Dojo please.

Mr Shenton


Don’t forget that we are looking for entries for our character competition. Create your EBJ website character and send us a photo of it in your windows for all to see.

Remember – your designs could be realised by digital graphic designers and feature on our new website! What a cool prize!! We have received a few so far but want so many more.

Every day this week we will create a cartoon character for you. This week we have posted on Class Dojo a different character with How to draw guides

Monday’s ladybird

Tuesday’s dragon

Wednesday’s badger

Thursday’s narwhal
