However delicious this food may look, it is not healthy!


Rules about snacks at break time are changing. Snacks MUST be either; a piece of fruit (this can be dried fruit but not Fruit Winders, vegetables or a piece of toast. Toast can be purchased from school for the small fee of £1 per week.







*Please make sure that your PE kit (both indoor and outdoor) are always at school. We might have the chance to do PE when we are not on the timetable. Your kit can be washed at the weekend or half-term.

I came. I saw. I conquered.


This topic, we will be studying the Romans. Some of the activities that we have to look forward to are below;

We will be researching the infamous Julius Caesar! We will have a look at who he was, why he was so famous and how he became the most powerful man on earth during his reign!



We will be learning which countries were taken over by the Romans and how they completely overwhelmed the Celts. We will look at where it all started and where the demise of the empire began.



We will also be using our DT skills to design and create an intricate Roman brooch, ready to wear to our Roman party!




Our topic will end with an exciting Roman party! 



A quick joke; How did the Roman Empire get cut in half?


With a pair of Caesars!

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!
