This is what Walkington school is all about. Thank you to everyone in KS2 who has looked after our friends from KS1 while we have been all mixed up in different classes this week – we are very proud of you.

It looks like these boys are thoroughly enjoying the chance to get into the kitchen and get baking. And they made the entrance hall smell lovely too. Well done boys.
Our musical friend Mr Rooke is working with Y5/6 at the moment, composing some ‘soundscapes’ based on our ice and snow topics.

At Walkington School we aim to provide memorable and exciting learning opportunities within a safe and stimulating environment. We believe that Primary education should be varied, challenging and relevant to the world in which our pupils will live and work, and produce responsible citizens who are able to get the most out of life.
