Year 6 History Question

    Hello. I realise most people will be in Summer holiday mode, but am hoping one or two of you will be able to assist with this query.

    I'm returning to Year 6 from September, and have Ancient Greeks as a topic, which presents no problem at all to me as there are plenty of resources to be found online and in school.

    However, my other 'topic' is 'Early Islamic Civilization, including a study of Baghdad c AD 900'. Now, it is fair to say that my existing knowledge of this is somewhat limited!

    Has anyone prepared anything, or could someone point me in the right direction of suitable resources? I've looked and cannot find ANYTHING at all, which I find amazing!

    Needless to say, I'm going to start with Ancient Greece which will buy me a bit of time, but I would be very grateful for any assistance. I've been teaching for 20 years, and this is the first time I have been "stuck"!!!

    Many thanks, and I hope you all have a lovely Summer. [​IMG]

    Hi Fox

    Has your school taken the decision to drop WW2? We are still going to continue with it, concentrating on the effect on Britain - as far as I can see, that fits part of the new curriculum requirements. After a term of that, we are doing rivers and mountains then onto Ancient Greeks.
