Today we looked at how crime and punishment has changed over the years.
We learnt that the Anglo Saxons did not have prisons so punishments often involved paying a fine to a victim or their family. For some crimes, a body part could be chopped off. People had their hands, toes and even their noses chopped off!
We created our own court rooms and the children chose a suitable Anglo Saxon crime and punishment…
We also made a start on our brooches!
