We set great store on reading independently and enjoying books. Reading should be encouraged every night and we expect children to keep a record of their reading in their school diaries. 

Other homework may be set at other times (for instance, practice work in maths) but we will always try and give as much notice as possible.

In addition, there will be occasional 'big' homework activities (often over a holiday) which will be fully explained at the time.

Topic Homework due Monday 11th September 


Next week, we will be starting our new topic - 'Why was the Islamic Civilisation of 900AD known as the Golden Age of Islam?'

We'll start by looking at where this period begins and identifying some of the things it was responsible for providing us with. 

Over the weekend, I'd like you to find out who the Prophet Muhammad is and how he was associated with the Golden Age? This will help inform our topic work next week. 

See if you can find out:


What is a prophet?

Why is Muhammad so important to followers of Islam?

Are there any other prophets and can you name them?

Can you find out any other details about Muhammad such as birthplace and date?

Topic Homework due Monday 18th September


This week, we've been exploring what Baghdad was like in AD900 and what made it a 'Golden Age'. As well as finding out where Baghdad is located on a world map and what the world looked like in AD900, we touched upon what made the city so unique and such an advanced civilization.

We started to think about the role that The House of Wisdom played in the development of Baghdad. Over the weekend, I'd like you to see what you can find out about The House of Wisdom.

See if you can create something that we can add to our working wall, you'll need lots of facts about The House of Wisdom to complete our topic work writing task next week...good luck!
