Helme is a small primary school nestled in a glorious position overlooking the foothills of the Pennines.
The school runs a Breakfast Club to allow children to start school early and benefit from a hearty breakfast.
Jellies, an independent out of school club, runs after school in the Church in Linthwaite. Jellies staff pick up children both directly after school and are aiming to pick up at the end of after school activities in the near future. For more information about Jellies visit their website here.
After a number of wet Sports Days, the weather was kind this year. The traditional Opening Ceremony included children playing the National Anthem on clarinets, Class 3 performing their Dance and the whole school singing the Commonwealth and School songs.
There were 15 activities all linked to our fantastic year of sport and showcasing the children's improved sporting skills. The children competed as Commonwealth country teams. Yellow team thought that they would win 'because we are quick'. Green team said that they were trying their best and sharing their values. Well done to Red Team and Barbados. Many thanks to our young leaders in Class 4 and the inspirational Mrs Bligh-Smith for organising this for us.
On 19 June, children from Classes 1 and 2 competed against Moorlands, Honley Infants and Meltham Moor. Everybody had fun playing Boccia and seated Volleyball. Thanks to our young leaders who helped organise the event.
