This year the PTFA have again raised enough money to be able to fund an end of year trip for the whole school. This year we went to Escot Park for a day of Forest School style activities. The children were split into groups on the day and completed various events which will be led by the staff at Escot, including the Mud Walk.
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
OLYMPIC TORCH RUNNING report by Aeron Y6
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.
Y6 Canoe Day
Forest School – Yarty Class
During the first half of the Summer Term Yarty Class spend one day each week at Forest School. It takes place outdoors, and the children take part in a range of making, creating, and exploring tasks. The sessions form the stimulus for most of our lessons back at school, hopefully giving the children a rich and challenging experience to reflect on as they go.

Being so close to the coast we feel that this will be a useful life skill for this age group.
