Y6 Assembly: Ancient City of Baghdad & 1001 Arabian Nights

On Tuesday morning our two year 6 classes combined forces to showcase the work they have been doing since the end of the 11+ process at the start of January. Through the lens of 1001 Arabian Nights, the girls retold some of these famous middle Eastern folk tales that were popular during the Islamic Golden Age. What is common throughout all the editions of the 1001 Arabian Nights is the tale of the ruler Shahryar and his wife Scheherazade.

The assembly also included a confident investigation of the arabic number system and the structure and organisation of the ancient city of Baghdad. Well done to everyone who took part!
