'Passion for learning, education for life'

Year 3


Mr Kirby, Miss O'Dowd, Mr Nicholls and Miss Hadley would like to welcome you to our Year 3 year group page. We hope you find this a useful place to visit to gain any important information; find educational links and to have a peek at the wonderful things that are happening in Year 3!


Topic - Ancient Greece

Topic - Ancient Greece 1

This term we will be learning all about the Ancient Greeks!


This term we will be taking a step back in time to discover what life was like in Ancient Greece. Within this the children will be exploring the beginnings of democracy, iconic architecture,contributions to science and how such an incredible empire failed.  


We will also be conducting research as to how this time period has impacted upon life today.

Spellings are important in Year 3! Below we have attached the Year 1/2 Common Exception Words as well as the 3/4 Common Exception Words that can be practised throughout the Year! The Year 3/4 Common Exception Words are words that the children should be able to spell by the end of Year 4. 


We have also attached the spellings for Group 1 and Group 2 that we will be testing the children on every Friday!


Top Tip: When we test these spellings in school we put these words into sentences which you may want to try at home!

Recycling Project - Plastic Fantastic

Recycling Project - Plastic Fantastic 1

Blackwood School have entered a national competition in association with 'Garnier' called 'Plastic Fantastic'.


Our aim is to collect as much bathroom plastic as possible, up until the 5th July 2019 in order to help save our environment. 

The school who collects the most plastic, will have the chance to win a £10,000 grant towards playground equipment which will be made out of the plastic that we have recycled!


Additional to this, there will be an opportunity for the children to design their own recycling hub for the school which will also be entered into the competition. The best design will have the chance of winning an Ipad for the school!


Please send your bathroom plastics into school which will be recorded by the school council members within your class.


Attached below is a letter explaining the project a little further and a checklist so that you are aware of what plastics we are collecting.


Happy Recycling!
