Punishment through the Ages!
This half term, Year 6 will be travelling back in time to circa 1066AD to decide for themselves our Big Question:
Which era would you rather have been punished in?
They will become researchers to delve into the past and present investigating the types of crimes and punishments and how they can be prevented.
Undertaking various activities across the curriculum, they will research:
Throughout history, theft has always been the most common crime and
although punishments have become less harsh than at other times in history, the death penalty was only abolished in 1965!
They will also visit a Police Museum to find out all about the history of the Police Force in Greater Manchester followed by a visit to Manchester Crown Courts and will be involved in re-enacting a trial where someone have been accused of theft...or have they?
