A village school surprised children and parents by making a bear hunt with a difference.

Seaton Academy staff made an online bear hunt and put it up on their Facebook page for children to enjoy.

Each staff member filmed their own bear hunt from their houses and gardens and then the clips were edited together to make the fun film.

The six-minute video, which can be seen on Seaton Academy’s Facebook page, is accompanied by a post which said staff were missing their busy classrooms and the happy children and the daily contact with them, their parents and carers, so they put together the video to share with the children.

It added: “You all make our school the special place it is. Please share this video with the children and let’s go looking for bears.

“Take care and stay safe.”

The clip is proving to be a hit with many parents leaving positive messages to say how much their children have enjoyed the virtual bear hunt.
