Today P6 learned…

Working together as a team gets the job done…

We learned how to toast marshmallows…yum yum.

Putting wetsuits on is one of the hardest challenges we have had to do.

We are capable of things if we try them and give it our best effort.

Home tomorrow. #sadfaces

Our pupils share their ideas with the world!

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!

Torry Battery was the front of our Museum with facts about the Battery and why it is important to Aberdeen.

Thank you to all the visitors who came to visit our Museum of Scotland @ Walker Road. We loved your positive comments about the hard work of our staff and pupils  and how much you all learned from the pupils. It was a great day and there was a real buzz around the school.  The pupils and staff loved sharing their learning and we also got the big thumbs up from the Torry Heritage Society and the Community Council. We truly are Wonderful Walker Road!

Red Nose Day 2015

Friday 13th March

We are hoping that all pupils and staff from Nursery – P7 will change their faces and “Make your face funny for money”. 

Pupils should come dressed as they please that day, but with something funny about their face. 

We are suggesting £1 donation and all money donated will go directly to Comic Relief.

 If you have any questions, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
