Our Crime and Punishment Topic
We have had a fantastic term and achieved so much. During our Crime and Punishment topic we took a journey through British history to discover how crime and punishment has changed throughout the ages. We began in Norman Britain imagining that we were a Norman peasant who broke the dreaded Forest Laws. We wrote diaries in character. We then researched the life of Robin Hood before debating whether he was a real person or a fictional character. After learning about the gruesome Tudor Crimes and Punishments we wrote about our fantastic day out at a Tudor hanging and debated whether or not the Tudors were right to use such harsh methods of punishment. During the Stuart times we designed wanted posters for traitors, highwaymen, witches, poachers and smugglers. We learnt about Dick Turpin and considered whether he deserved to be hanged. In the Victorian times, we retold the story of a criminal whose sentence was transportation to Australia and researched the introduction of the police force and a day in the life of a prisoner in a Victorian prison. Once we were back up to date we looked at how crime is detected and prevented today.
