The Magical Christmas Jigsaw
Once again thank all the children of the school who have done us proud and given us a production to be proud of. It takes a lot of hard work from the children and the school staff to assemble these productions and produce a piece of such fine quality that includes every single child in the school.
Y5 & Y6 Sports Hall Athletics
Congratulations Kilmington Primary Y5 & Y6
On Tuesday 21st of November All Saints; Colyton; Kilmington; Seaton A and B; St Mary A and B competed in our Annual year 5/6 Indoor athletics events. Children took part in Speed bounce; Standing long jump; Chest push; long distance and short distance relay races. Each team of 12 took their turn to compete in all the events. An accumulative school was recorded as the event was in full flow. The leaders gave them tips on how to improve their jumps and to get quicker faster and longer scores. The leaders also go a great deal of experience out the event and said they enjoyed helping the younger children.
A HUGE well done to all teams! Every single athlete tried their best and contributed to the overall score.
Congratulations to Seaton and Kilmington Primary schools who are entering the next level of competition.

Swimming Gala – Year 5 & Year 6
Another triumph in our Sporting Events – we have won the Year 5/6 swimming gala again and I believe that our school is the only one to be on the shield so far! Congratulations to all those children and thanks to Mrs Quick for training the children for the event. To achieve such continued success takes dedication from all involved and a commitment to advocating a healthy lifestyle. In the news recently were statistics regarding increasing levels of obesity in children. If we can encourage healthy lifestyles – being active and eating sensibly – we are on our way to sending children out into the world with the knowledge and attitude to live long and healthy lives.
Stone Age Hunter Gatherers
Otter class had a stone age survival expert come in who talked to the class about different things and let us have a go at them too. We had a go at fire making, we did some flint knapping, and we made some string all with stone age techniques and stone age style tools.
We learned so much, and were all inspired with our topic of Stone Age hunter gatherers!
Head Boy & Head Girl
Joseph– Head Boy
Alara – Head Girl
Jack– Deputy Head Boy
Lilly – Deputy Head Girl
We thoroughly enjoyed listening to the boys and girls in year 6 give their speeches on why they would like to role of Head Boy or Head Girl. It was comforting to hear that they feel the same way as we do about how our school should ’feel’. Caring for each other; acting responsibly; setting a good example; being helpful; were all reasons that were cited in several of the speeches. The rest of the school listened carefully, asked sensible questions and voted very sensibly concluding with the election of some very capable candidates. There will be several other jobs for Year 6 to take on this year so there will be plenty for them all to do as ambassadors for Kilmington Primary.
School Councillors have also been elected from each year group – we look forward to hearing about their plans for the future of the school too. Previous school council members have had some excellent ideas that we have been able to implement and we welcome the children’s voice in decision making.
