WOW! Events


Here at Seaton St. Paul's CE Junior School we follow a creative and immersive Curriculum. Each term our learning is based on themes and each theme begins with a memorable 'WOW!' activity to engage us, inspire us and create awe around our learning. As you can see from our smiling faces in the photographs below, we LOVE these activities and events- they make us really excited about our new theme and always leave us wanting to learn more! 

Here are some examples of 'WOW' activities and events at our school...




It has been wonderful to see what Year 6 got up to during their World War II WOW afternoon as part of their home learning last week.

Year 4 have produced some lovely pieces of work on the Vikings during our WOW activity afternoon. They created shields. longboats and even coded messages into the runic alphabet. Fantastic work everyone!
