Each week, Mrs Pennington, Teacher of English and Cowley’s Literacy Coordinator chooses a word of the week, or WOW as it’s affectionately known in the college.
Every time a student uses the WOW in their work, they are praised and achievement points are awarded.
Every Monday, this page will have the word of the week displayed, along with the collections of WOW’s from previous weeks.
If you have a word you think should be added to our word of the week, we’d love to hear it! Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org using WOW as your subject title.
