Welcome to Axminster Community Primary Academy

Welcome to Axminster Community Primary Academy

Our school, which has a high reputation for so many things, prides itself on having a sound, traditional approach to subjects but with the best of new technology and good quality facilities for the children. 

Axminster Primary Academy is rather special; you have only to approach the school to see that it is different from others. There is ample evidence outside to show that a caring attitude has been used in the environment and even more important is the fact that parents and inspectors have remarked that this caring attitude is transferred to relationships within the School. We are proud of this fact. Children are at the heart of Axminster Community Primary Academy and each child is encouraged to achieve the highest standard possible in all aspects of school life.

I hope you find the information on our website useful and informative, but obviously the best way to get a real feel about us is to come and visit us, look around and meet the children and staff.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to arrange a visit.

All change!

All change!

This week Ash Class are going to be looking at change.  Their beetles have now moved out into the garden to make room for the tadpoles! The tadpoles will be staying with the children for a few weeks so that they can observe any changes, similarities and differences. Yesterday they looked at how colours can change. The children carried out a mixing experiment, watching as the colours spread across kitchen roll and what happened when they met in the middle.  Click on the title to view more photographs.

Ning Nang Nong

Chesnut Class have been looking at nonsense poetry and wrote these verses in the style of the On the Ning, Nang, Nong by Spike Milligan.  Budding poets in the making!  Please see the poem attached by clicking on the title.

 

Pirate Party

Pirate Party
Last week Ash Class wrote invitations to the children from our Early Years Centre, inviting them to a pirate party.  Since then they have been busy making decorations and thinking about instructions about how to make a cake.  After making the cakes on Wednesday and decorating them on Thursday, it was then time for the party!  The children dressed up as pirates and made pictures using sea themed characters.  They carefully prepared a fruit salad to share and enjoyed sitting down together with the Early Years children. To finish their party the children played some pirate games in the hall.  Please click on the title to view more photographs.

Early years children keeping fit!

Early years children keeping fit!

The children of our Early Years Centre have been busy learning how to listen to instructions, carry out tasks and spacial awareness.  They have been doing this under the supervision of Go-Active, the school's sports tutors.  The children have also enhanced their co-ordination skills as well as learning to co-operate with other children within the group.  It was lovely to see the children engaging in physical activities to help keep themselves healthy.  The children will be participating in this activity twice a week for the remainder of the Summer term.  Click on the title to see our photographs.

Beetles in the garden!

Beetles in the garden!

Last week the children of Ash Class were very excited to have found some stag beetles in the playground.  They all went up to have a look and talked about the different minibeasts they might find around the tree.  Also they looked at how the bark of the tree felt different to the others as it had been eaten and buried into by the beetles.  The children took some beetles back to class and made some observational drawings.  Some children decided to use the laptop to look at more pictures.  This week Ash Class have been looking for different minibeasts in the garden, and have found some worms and woodlice.  The children have used magnifying glasses and viewing pots to see how they move.  Click on the title to view more photographs.
