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. In October 2015, Jellies were judged 'Outstanding' by Ofsted. For more information about Jellies visit their website here.
After a glorious morning, we were all a little surprised to start our Sports Day 2016 in a cloud of drizzle! Fortunately, it didn’t last and we were soon performing our traditional Opening Ceremony in the sunshine.
Competition played an important role as always with the children trying to gain as many points as possible. Many conversations about tactics were overheard as well as the great support and encouragement given by all children to their teammates. “Let’s be like a mob of meerkats – they stick together.” Caleb told his team.
Well done to the Green team who were the overall winners.
All children in KS2 have been part of the Bloom and Grow Together project since September 2015. The project has involved working alongside our neighbours at Helme Hall Residential Care Home to learn about individual, group and shared identities. Together, we designed, decorated and planted two hanging baskets, four window boxes and two big tubs based on our community, history and shared values.
