'Crime and Punishment'-themed trip to Norwich Castle and The Museum of Norwich!
Larch Class and the rest of UKS2 went on an exciting day-trip to the beautiful city of Norwich! We visited Norwich Castle to learn more about the history of Crime and Punishment, as we've been studying this theme in our Humanities lessons this half-term. The staff at the Castle took on the personas of real people from history (a former prisoner of the Castle, from when it was used as a jail, and the Prison Warden's wife!) to better acquaint us with the gruesome history of crime and punishment from the 14th to the 19th centuries. We also visited the Museum of Norwich at the Bridewell, where we spent time exploring the history of Norwich through art and artefacts. An exhibition by a contemporary photographer who has combined his photos with paintings from the 18th century formed the inspiration for some great brainstorming and note-making! We plan to turn our notes into stories in the first-person. All in all, it was a memorable and fun day out, and the weather was lovely too!
