Article 28: We have the right to an education, learning about the world around us.

Today, Year 6 took part in a drama workshop linked to our history topic of ‘The Early Islamic Civilisation’. We looked at how Baghdad was first built and created some scenes throughout the history of the city, covering major events from the building of the city and the House of Wisdom to the destruction of Baghdad following the Mongol invasion.

We started with some freeze-frame activities and some teamwork challenges before beginning our rehearsals and putting our acting skills into practise.

At the end of the day, we invited our families to come and watch the performance, as well as the children in years 4 and 5.

We enjoyed sharing the knowledge we had learned throughout the day, and would like to say a big thank you to everyone who was able to come and watch the performance.
