In History, the children in Year 6 are learning about Crime and Punishment. They welcomed a visitor into school on Friday and enjoyed a fantastic workshop, packed full with activities, learning about crime and punishment throughout the ages:
- Anglo Saxons – the different laws in existence at that time; fines and punishments for different crimes; oath helpers; and ordeals.
- Tudors – working in small groups, the children created scripts of crimes they’d committed using Tudor criminal slang.
- Re-enactment of the trial of Captain William Kidd, a man who was trialled and executed for murder and piracy.
- Crime and Punishment in Victorian times – the children learnt about crime and punishment in the Victorian era; learning that children as young as 12 could be sent to prison. They dressed up a Victorian children and created mugshots of themselves. What a motley crew they are!
