What a wonderful time we had on Friday at the Christmas Fair, so marvellously organised by the Friends and Staff of Walkley Primary School. There was so much to do at the fair, all our favourites were there: The Jar Tombola, The Christmas Pudding Game, Name the Polar Bear, Toy stalls, Christmas Jumper stall, Lucky Dip and Reindeer food stall. Also this year you could get a temporary tattoo and play the 'Name the Staff Baby Photo Game'. As always, Father Christmas was visited by many children and this year, refreshments were taken in Gruffalos classroom.
We are very pleased to announce that the Walkley Summer Fair raised a wonderful Two thousand and fifty five pounds!!!
This money will be put towards our school fund for significant investment in the outdoor play spaces.
Huge thank you to all those who helped out in any capacity. Those who donated gifts or their time to support this event

Walkley Primary School Summer Fayre 2019
Many thanks to everyone for your participation, organisation and support of the Walkley Primary School Summer Fayre. Blessed with wonderful weather and a magnitude of activities and events; things to see and do, a great time was had by all. So much effort goes into putting on such an event and with every passing year the fayre grows in stature and support. It remains a very significant part of the school year. Congratulations to the event organisers made up of parents and staff working together to deliver this for the families of Walkley. Here are some pictures captured on the day: http://www.walkley.sheffield.sch.uk/news/detail/walkley-primary-school-summer-fayre-2019/
A packed hall and a magical treat for pupils, parents and staff, we were having a great time at the Musical Extravaganza. Walkley at its best!!

A Very Festive Affair
On Friday the Walkley Primary School family gathered to start the festive season in style. After weeks of preparations and a particularly busy day leading up to the fair, the parents and staff worked like elves in Santa's workshop to set up a multitude of treats for pupils past, present and future. We were supported once again by Welbilt (our Breakfast Club partners) who provided pizzas and pigs in blankets (quickly snaffled) along with a plethora of cakes and other treats for sale provide by avid Walkley bakers. With craft activities to keep any elf busy and of course a certain someone in his grotto with one almighty queue there was ever such a lot of things to do!! In the main hall amongst the many stalls, children could take a chance in the jar tombola, have their face painted, attempt to hook a bag, or find the star behind the Christmas pudding raisins and of course the raffle prizes generously provided by the staff.
A great big thank you to everyone and a Merry Christmas to all. We managed to raise an amazing £1517.17
See you on Monday for Carol singing on the stage.
An Amazing Summer Fair Celebration
we had another fantastic day on Saturday 7th July. The Summer Fair is always a coming together of the parents, staff and pupils of Walkley and once again we all savoured a very special time. Brought forward to avoid the complication of clashing with a certain World Cup quarter final, everybody rallied round to get the fair ready and open. What a brilliant afternoon we had, so many exciting things to do and once again an amazing amount of money made for the school fund. In total over £1400 was raised. Thank you all so much for your time, effort and dedication to the pupils at Walkley.
Proms on the Playground - 12th June 2018
What an amazing evening at Walkley. Yesterday the whole community came together for an evening of music, singing and dance. In the Outdoor Performance Theatre pupils, parents and staff put on an incredible show. The pupils performed with violin, piano, recorders, percussion and voice, some collaborative and some solo pieces. Parents and staff added extra fun with commitment, (Mrs Jinkinson) singing, dancing and even a band!
Raising £460 for new musical equipment across school this was undoubtedly one of Walkley Primary's finest ever celebration events. Congratulations and thanks to everyone who helped, performed and attended.

Friends Of Walkley Put On A Fantastic Summer Fair
On Saturday afternoon, my family joined the many families of Walkley Community at the annual Walkley Primary School Summer Fair. Organised by the wonderful Friends of Walkley, lots of exciting stalls were pitched around the upper school grounds, raising lots of valuable funds for our school and pupils.
This year, on what was a beautiful afternoon of sunshine, as well as the traditional long queue for face painting, guests could also have their nails painted, meet Princess Poppy or Chase, decorate T shirts, hook ducks, negotiate the bouncy castles, estimate the number of Lego bricks used to build the bear, or join in any of the other exciting activities; everybody had fun.
By taking a chance on the tombola or the raffle, or spending big on the many stalls full of fabulous wares, we managed to raise an amazing amount of money. There was also a terrific display by the Walkley Cheerleading Troop and Walkley Primary School Choir to behold.
In addition, I have noticed that the queue for 'Soak the teacher with a sponge' didn't relent for quite some time, my own son eagerly joining that particular queue!
We send out a huge marshmallow clap from all the pupils and staff to our marvellous volunteers and helpers who make these days so special. Once again you did us proud!
We raised a truly awesome £1557.85... that's right, you read it correctly...
