We had an amazing day full of challenges and firsts! From Gorge walking and conquering our fears, to building our own zipwire, to toasting marshmallows and popcorn. Best classroom in the world. #welljel
What a great day to celebrate Sports Day – the sun shone brightly and so did our pupils! The pupils looked great in their house colours and had a great morning of exercise and fun. Going by the tired, but happy, faces at lunch they definitely gave it their all. Well done (especially to Mrs Gray and Miss Carle for all their hard work organising the event!). The Walker Road team definitely showed that being good at sport is important, but above all being a good sport is also important!

We will also be looking for feedback over the next few weeks. Please feel free to leave a comment to this post to let us know if it was a success or not. Thank you!
Thank you to all who came to our Dance Show yesterday. It was brilliant and we were so proud of all our pupils. The children loved being able to share their dances with you. If you have any photos then please let Miss Graham know so we can share some of them on here.
And finally…thank you to Mrs Sadler and Mrs Brown for giving up their time and sharing their talents in both Zumba and Highland Dancing. Great work ladies!
Aquatic Aberdeen are offering free lessons to eligible P6s and P7s. It would be great if some of our pupils were able to take part in these lessons and learn this very important life skill. The details are as follows:
Free Swimming Lessons at Aberdeen Sports Village
Aberdeen Sports Village is offering five weeks of free swimming lessons to eligible children as part of our SwimFree@asv initiative. Your child might be eligible if:
– they are in Primary 6 or Primary 7 at one of Aberdeen City’s schools,
– they cannot currently swim, and
– they are not already enrolled in a learn to swim programme
Primary 5 (Miss Munro’s class) were challenged to create a collaborative piece of art for MOL Energy’s new office in Aberdeen. They have exceeded all expectations and received lots of compliments about their work, their creativity and positive attitudes towards others from all involved. The class worked with students from Gray’s School of Art and presented the pieces based on the theme of transition to Chris Bird (Managing Director) at school on Tuesday. Grahame Paterson (CEO of Transition Extreme), who co-ordinated the project, was so impressed he has sponsored a day at Transition Extreme for the whole class – well done Primary 5!
And…Primary 4 (Miss Davidson’s class) wrote persuasive letters to First Bus to ask them to help celebrate Wojtek – The Brave Bear who served with the Polish Army during World War 2. First Bus was so impressed they have asked Primary 4 to rename the main bus route for Torry (#12) after Wojtek. The Primary 4s have just finished their animation about Wojtek (coming soon!) and are now helping to create the Wojtek section of our blog – a work in progress! Well done Primary 4 – your voices were truly listened to and we are so proud of your achievements!
Well done to all the pupils who took part in our Reading for Gold. It was great to see so many pupils reading all over the school, including in the lunch line! On Friday 24th April we presented awards to all the remarkable readers who had achieved a milestone in reading over the month of March. This saw us present over 75 Bronze and Silver certificates and 25 Gold Medals! Fantastic work Walker Road!
