Crime and Punishment 👮🏻‍♂️

Crime and Punishment

Our joint topic this term is to develop an understanding of crime and punishment over time.

To begin we created word clouds for both 'crime' and 'punishment' and created 'What I Know' and 'What I Wonder' posters.

We had a list of different crimes and acted them out for the rest of the class to guess.

Do laws and punishments change over time?

As part of this lesson we looked at different rules we have in place in our classroom and school and why they are needed. We then talked about the consequences if we didn't follow those rules and the difference between rules and consequences in a Victorian school. 

Police force how they change overtime and had a visitor to ask questions. 


We looked in to what are the different crimes: Arson, pickpocketing, murder, stealing from rabbit warren, wrecking a fish pond, forgery, cutting trees down, destroying turnpike roads, stealing from a shipwreck and then we discussed what the punishments you get if you do a crime.
