Thank you for all the kind donations which have already been delivered at school for our food bank collection. All the children took part in a joyous yet thoughtful assembly this afternoon, where once again we reflected upon how fortunate we are.
To coincide with World Space Week and our current topic ‘On the Move’, we were delighted to welcome Richard Farrimond to school this morning. In 1984, the then Major and soon to be Lieutenant Colonel, was selected to join the Space Shuttle programme and underwent NASA astronaut training in the USA. Following the Challenger disaster […]
We are pleased to announce that after voting by the Year 6 pupils last Friday, our House Captains for the year have been selected. They will no doubt do a great job, and represent their house and school extremely well. All of our new children now know which house they belong to, and all the […]
We have just received a text to say that following a ‘great time’ at the railway museum, the children have now arrived safely at the the YHA in Haworth. (having just checked the forecast, it may be a little wetter in Haworth than our picture suggests…)

No matter what opportunities and technology you place before children, sometimes nothing beats an empty box, a plank of wood and your imagination! These boys were having a fantastic time playing together this morning (and learning lots about science in the process!)
Continuing our summer of sporting success, our rounders team are the latest team to return to school clutching a trophy. Well done one again to everyone who has played in this team, and to all the pupils who are continuing the strong inter-house tradition we enjoy in this sport during the summer term.
Following our recent win in the Beverley School’s rugby tournament, we are delighted to report that the children have continued their winning ways by coming first at the Longcroft cricket event. Well done team!
We hope everyone in the village has a great time today enjoying the festival atmosphere as the race comes through. The children have been busy making bunting and decorating our bike, which Sir Bradley is now pulling a wheelie on down by the pond! Have a great day everybody.
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.
