The book called "Wolfie's Work Out Book", contains numerous cross curricular activities and exercises and is packed full of quizzes, art sections, story spots, player interviews, competitions and word searches.The work book will be the dynamic starting point for learning through the project 'Wilderschool', which is where schools visit the "Wolf Den Classroom" at Wilderspool. Wilderschool, which is now part ofPrimary Link, has been running for five years and is a vehicle that the Wolves use to deliver elements of Key Stage 1 & 2 of the National Curriculum.At their visit, youngsters and teachers enjoy a full day at the stadium which involves project work, structured lessons, exploring the stadium, practical work on the pitch, a coaching session and meeting the Wolves players. Now part of Wilderschool, each pupil will recieve Wolfie's WorkOut Book to keep.Wilderschool, in addition to all of the Wolves' other community projects, has been enhanced by the clubs' new community partner Manweb. Through this partnership, Wolfie has teamed up with Electro-Jet.Stewart Saunders, Manweb's Managing Director says "Electro-Jet will give valuable advice and safety tips throughout the book on how to stay safe at home and at play. Manweb is very pleased to be sponsoring the Wolves community development programme, which will benefit so many youngsters in Warrington and the surrounding areas."Adam Jude, Community Development Manager for the Wolves says "It is important to the club to promote safety issues and one way of achieving this aim is through Wolfie's new partnership with Electro - Jet and Wilderschool."He adds, "Warrington Wolves have written the book so that the children can get the most from thier Wilderschool visit. The club is sure the book will prove a massive hit with the children and schools in warrington and the surrounding areas due to the cult status of Wolfie and the content of the book."The work book will be used for follow up activities back at school or for the children to take home to complete in their own time.
