This week we have been continuing our Ancient Islamic Civilisation topic by finding out about Caliph al-Mansur and why he chose to build Baghdad in Mesopotamia. We also enjoyed discussing the Code of Hammurabi - the laws in Mesopotamia over 3000 years ago; deciding on whether we felt the punishments fitted the crimes.
 
Linked to this, our Literacy work continues on The Arabian Nights. We did a drama activity based on  the story of the Three Princes and Princess Nourinhar. We used freeze frames to show the different scenes through out the story. Can you guess what is happening in the pictures below?
