Year 6 are currently studying the ‘Golden Age of Islam’. This is a period of time ranging from the civil war between the Umayyads and the Abbasids in 750ce, up until the sack of Baghdad by the Mongols in 1258ce. We will be learning about the civil war, the Round City of Baghdad, the House of Wisdom and about the lives of the people in the Abbasid Caliphate.  

The children in Year 6 have been creating their own timelines of the Abassid era.
