Spring Term

What was important about the Golden Age of Islam?


This term we will be learning all about the Golden Age of Islam. We will begin by exploring the importance of the Prophet Muhammad, as the founder of Islam. Then, we’ll look at how the Golden Age of Islam began, and what it was like to live in Baghdad at this time. We will explore why this was such an important time in history, exploring the famous scholars of the time and how their study has effected what we know about the world today. In art, we will look at creating geometric patterns in our own Islamic style art.


What fills the space between us and the stars?


Our science topic this term takes us far away from planet Earth, to explore space. We will think about what else exists in the galaxy around us, looking at how the position and movements of Earth influence the way our planet is and how we experience seasons, years and months, as well as day and night. In English, we will use our imaginations to write space-themed stories.

PE is every Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure that you have a PE kit suitable for all weather in on each of these days. It will be useful if PE kit can be kept in school all week, as sometimes our PE days might change due to weather and other activities.






Our ‘must’ homework will be set on a Friday and is expected back in the following Thursday. This includes:

  • Spellings to be practised for a spelling assessment on Thursdays
  • -MyMaths/English homework



  • Children are expected to read 5 days a week at home. This can be alone or with an adult, but we encourage sharing books at home! This should be recorded in children’s reading diaries.
  • Children are expected to practise times tables regularly. Being quick at recalling times tables is very helpful in maths lessons, and supports lots of other maths learning that we do in school. Children can practise with others or practise online using Times Tables Rockstars.



  • Children might also like to complete one or more of the Nandos challenges! These are not compulsory, but are fun activities which relate to our topic, and can be done with parents at home.

These questions can be used to support your child's thinking and understanding of what they are reading and can be used when you listen to your child read at home.
