8 teams from Years 4, 5 and 6 represented schools in the Axe Valley Cluster Swimming Gala.

The races included front crawl, backstroke, breast stroke  All races were 25m. We also had time to complete the 50m open race which was exciting to watch.  Some children were also able to participate in the FUN relays. These included woggles and an on the water assault course which included some team work skills.

The children all put in a fantastic effort in their races. They also demonstrated good sportsmanship, cheering on others and supporting their team members.

Kilmington – Alara did particularly well and won 2 of her races.  Jemimah, William, Noah and Nieeve also won their races. The boys relay did well with a time of 1.48.46sec and Noah did particularly well in the 50m winning his race with a time of 42.41s which was 6 seconds faster than second place from All Saints.

A total of 8 teams entered and Kilmington was announced the winning team for the third year running a fantastic achievement!

Well done to all who took part.


Harvest Festival

In October, we welcomed families to our Harvest assembly in The Beacon Church.    As the food-bank in Axminster had been flooded recently and quite a lot of their supplies had been ruined, we again supported this charity by bringing in donations for the food-bank on the morning of the assembly

Thank you to all the families for your supporting them again this year.

Y5 Play Leader Training

PLAYLEADER TRAINING  – Special commendation goes to all our Year 5 children who attended the ‘Playleader Training’ at Colyton Grammar School.  Mrs Harris, who arranges the training, was full of praise for our team and Mrs Slade, who accompanied the children, came back with a long list of examples of the exceptional behaviour, teamwork and consideration of other people that were seen.  Mrs Harris also added at the end of the day that this group were the best playleaders she has ever had on the scheme!  Well done to Year 5, you have done Kilmington Primary proud!

Olympic Torch Event


On Monday, a team of runners were selected to transport an Olympic torch to Shute Primary School. The event was to celebrate the Olympic Games in Rio this year. The Olympic torch was not the real one, it was made by Colyton Grammar School. The group that ran the torch consisted of eleven children and Mrs White and their task was to run (or walk) three miles. The group started off during assembly, after letting Mrs Brooker and Alfie take a few pictures of the group. Their route took them through School Lane, crossing Whitford Road into The Street. The group ran down Silver Street and came upon a sign post. They carried on with spirit as the sign had told them that they were one third of the way on the journey to Shute. The group then consulted a map and decided they had to carry on and go down Bimbom Lane. They then saw a sign post saying that it was only half a mile to Shute. Finally the group found themselves on Haddon Road and they knew they were close. A few minutes later they had arrived and they ran triumphantly up the driveway. After that the horses arrived and the boy from Shute and his mother with them. The group handed over the torch, had a drink and set off on the road back to school. They took a different route back but they were alone most of the time as the route was unsuitable for cars. They met up with Mrs Brooker again on the junction to Roman Road and then carried on back to school.


The torch was then taken by horse to Colyton Primary who were planning a cycle ride to Seaton Primary.
