Meet the Wolves

Welcome to the ‘WOLVES’ home page. Our class teacher is Miss Lewis and our teaching assistant is Mrs Good. You will see us on the playground every morning from 8.40am if you have any questions or messages.

Our P.E. times this term are Wednesday mornings . It is, however, recommended that pupils keep their P.E kit in school at all times as we often have extra P.E. sessions such as Freddy Fit.

We will read with the children every day so please ensure that your child's book bag and home reading book are brought to school every day. Please sign and date if you have heard your child read at home to enable us to change their book when they need to. Reading records will be checked and books changed on a weekly basis.

Homework will be handed out on a Friday to be returned on a Tuesday. You can also help your child by reading daily and signing your child's home - school reading record and practising times tables and weekly spellings.


Greece is the Word!

In Wolves, our topic this term is Greeks. In this topic, we will be looking at the Geography of modern day Greece, including climate, physical geography and human geography. We will investigate why Greece is a popular tourist destination.

In the second Half term, we will study Ancient Greece and its affect on the modern world.


What have the Wolves been learning?

We are about to begin our Myths and Legends topic in writing. This will include looking the different myths and and legends (including Greek myths), identify the features and use this to create our own myth in our Hot Write.

In Maths, we are looking at statistics, including line graphs and timetables. We will then use these to answer questions about the data.
