Early Islamic Civilisation

Another half term – another fantastic topic to learn about!

This half term in our History topic, we are learning about Early Islamic Civilisation. As per tradition, we started our topic with our topic exploration lesson. Have a look at the amazing work we did!

We worked in teams to research about Baghdad in the Golden Era.

Take a look at our fantastic WOW posters! 

Some things we found out about deforestation.

Save Our Rainforest

This half term (Summer 1) our Geography topic is ‘Save Our Rainforests’. We kick-started the topic by doing a topic exploration lesson where we explored key questions and facts about rainforests as well dipping into the world of John Dyer, a UK based artist who has a vision to change the world one rainforest at a time!

This half term (Autumn 2) we have been learning about the Greeks!

In this lesson we explored the inventions created by the Greeks that we still use today. We were amazed at our findings!

 

“The Greeks were fabulous at inventing things!” – Param

 

“ I didn’t know that the Greek invented the wheelbarrow.” – Azlan

 

We have explored Greek artefacts, Greek pottery, the Greek alphabet and even made our own Trojan horses! A jam-packed end to our Groovy Greeks topic.

 

 

A big shout out to our GREEK EXPERT in class, Mr Moath, who used his initiative and explored the topic beforehand so he could share his knowledge with us in class!

Well done Moath!
