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.

Gold Award for School Games

For the fourth year running we have achieved the Gold Award for school games – a fabulous achievement for a small village school. We are so proud to be able to nurture children with the enthusiasm for an active lifestyle.

Fairtrade – Coly Class

This term Coly class have been learning about Fairtrade. We made Fairtrade fruit sticks with orange dip in our DT lesson using as much Fairtrade fruit as possible.

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.
