Term 5 and 6 The Rise of Baghdad
Between the 8th century and the 13th century the Islamic empire expanded throughout the Middle Ages to become one of the largest empires in the history of the world. It controlled the Middle East, northern Africa, parts of Spain and parts of Asia into India. While Europe was languishing in the dark ages, the Middle East was experiencing a time of economic prosperity and scientific advancement. This time was known as the Islamic Golden Age. This period lasted from around 790 CE to 1258 CE. The cultural centre during this time was the city of Baghdad which also served as the capital of the Abbasid Caliphate. Children will learn about this empire relating and comparing it to empires they have learnt about in the past and answer enquiry questions that develop their understanding of ancient civilisations.
Knowledge Organiser Term 5 and 6
Reading is so important
Reading is a key skill as it affects all areas of day to day life. As a school we promote a love of reading and encourage children to read a wide range of different genres.
When children can read fluently with good understanding they self-select books from our well stocked library.
Parents/Carers can help at home by listening to your child read or sharing their book.
The expectation is that your child reads at home a minimum of five times per week in KS2 (Year 3, 4, 5 and 6). This should be recorded in their reading record.
Our current read.... Term 4 Term 3
Term 2 Term 1 Term 1
Other texts we recommend reading with your Year 6 child are...
In addition, children can access Reading Eggs, an online reading program, at home or in school. Please see your class teacher for login details.
We always encourage children to learn to spell correctly. They will be taught the spelling 'rules' and how to apply this knowledge in their work.
To support them and let them have some fun while learning we use an online program called Spelling Shed. This can be accessed at home, using the link below. Please see your class teacher for login details.
Also below is a printable sheet showing the key words for their key stage.
We have at least two PE lessons per week. Please ensure your child's kit is in school at all times to enable us to be flexible. We do PE in all types of weather so please ensure your child has suitable PE kit. In the Summer months we recommend shorts and t-shirt and in the winter long trousers with t-shirt and hoodie. Trainers should be worn.
All kit should be clearly labelled with your child's name.
An example of our kit, which can be purchased from NK Sports, is below or your child needs a plain white t-shirt and black shorts.
We are also skipping for two minutes per day, as part of Skip to be Fit and running a mile around the playground to travel the World.
