Crime and Punishment

Over the week year 6 have all visited the Police Museum in Chelmsford to find out about crime and punishment throughout the ages. After an exciting journey on the train and a brisk walk through the town, they began with a workshop exploring the history of crime and punishment. One task they were asked to complete was to solve a crime from 1927 – this really highlighted the differences in methods that the police have today to help them solve crime compared to 100 years ago. Some of the children experienced being in a cell or being locked in a pillory; 6G even met some current police men and women who were on duty. It was a very busy morning for the year 6 children and they fully immersed themselves in our justice system.
