WOLVISTON SCHOOL AIMS

Transfer to Secondary Education
At 11+ children are transferred to secondary comprehensive schools. Most Wolviston children transfer to Northfield Comprehensive or Billingham Campus School.
Before the children transfer, parents are given a copy of a booklet 'Secondary Education in Stockton'. The booklet explains the transfer arrangements for the whole of Stockton.
Before transfer, children visit their new school to familiarise themselves with teaching staff, organisation and the buildings. Parents are usually invited to the secondary school to meet some of the members of staff
I go to Karate every Wednesday and Friday. I am currently blue belt; it’s a lot of fun. We do things like running, press-ups, squat thrusts, pull-ups and stretching - that’s just the warm up. Afterwards we do grading work: grading is about getting new belts and tips. Then we do throws and holds. At the end we either do races or games.
I am mad about games; I play on them all day. I have a ps2, gamecube, Nintendo 64, Super Nintendo and a Plug ‘n’ Play. My favourite types of game include adventure, RPG, action, and racing. I have more hero-orientated games.
Marvel Legends Figure Collecting
I love Marvel Legends Figures. They normally have about 35 points of articulation and are very collectable. I currently have a collection consisting of Apocalypse, Wolverine, Shadowcat, x-23, Maestro, Sasquatch, Task Master, Ironfist and Green Goblin. They are brilliant to play with. I’ll keep these for a long time.

Swimming and Dancing
My hobbies are swimming and line dancing. I go swimming two times a week. I go dancing on a Friday. I am in Lane Five in both of my swimming clubs. I am on my star one in dancing, which is the highest out of all the children my teacher has taught.
I love to dive. My favourite strokes are backstroke, front crawl and butterfly. Butterfly is really hard but with flippers it is really easy. Backstroke is probably the easiest stroke. Front crawl is another easy stroke, but you have to get your position right.
I love to dance. I do a bit of ballet and a bit of disco. I go to the Janet Dickinson School of Dance. We have to do the splits in it!
By Emily (Class 4)
Our favourite hobby is dancing. Every Monday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday we go dancing for medals. We started dancing when we were 3 years old. The dancing that we do is ballroom, Latin, disco, tap, jazz, ballet, and modern. Our favourite type of dance is tap.
Ballroom consists of tango, waltz, foxtrot and quickstep. Tap is very hard when you get to a high stage. Jazz is a bit classic; you can use a trumpet or saxophone.
