Blackwood School Council

Our Autumn Project - Blackwood in the community

During this term, the school counsellors have worked hard to develop links within the community as part of their Autumn project. On Monday 18th December, the KS2 school council visited Inglewood Care home on Chester Road. With the help of the school council lead teachers, the children put together a Christmas song which they performed to the residents, made Christmas themed cards (made by KS1) and donated a hamper courtesy of Blackwood school. The children represented our school brilliantly and were a credit to Blackwood, making us very proud! 


Previous projects

Whole School Project

The School Council Team for Years 1-6 worked incredibly hard to complete their nature area project last year.   They made bird feeders, hedgehog homes and professionally-made signage for our nature area.  Mr Poynton and his team of helpers (including Mr Parker) also spent some time clearing out the area and sprucing it up with a fresh coat of paint!  Later in the term, the school council hope to invite each year group to go and explore the nature trail which also includes information plaques linked to our science curriculum.  Well done to all the school councillors and their school council lead teachers for all their hard work and enthusiasm.  




Autumn Term - Years 5 and 6

Over the Autumn term, the Year 5 and 6 school councillors have worked very hard to create a display board based on inspirational figures from many different cultures and ethnicities throughout history. Upon gathering inspirational people from each year group, the children researched the life of these key individuals and condensed the information into a small paragraph in order to educate those across the school. We as a council feel that it is important to reflect the diversity across our school and provide role models for the children to aspire to.


We have received many compliments since the children and teachers have returned to school after the Christmas break. Well done, we are extremely proud of you!

Autumn Term 1 - Years 3 and 4

This term, Years 3 and 4 will be teaming up with Years 1 and 2 to focus on recycling. We have found a fantastic TerraCycle scheme, which allows us to recycle pens, highlighters and whiteboard pens. Since so many of these are used and thrown away in school, we think this would be a fantastic opportunity. We are currently setting up recycling locations within school and creating posters to encourage children (and adults) to recycle this equipment.

Autumn Term 1 - Years 1 and 2

This term, Years 1 and 2 will be teaming up with Years 3 and 4 to focus on recycling. Since a lot of pens are used and thrown away in school, we would like to help collect them and recycle them with TerraCycle! We are setting up recycling locations within school and can't wait to get started!
