Crime and Punishment What’s Your Story?


Crime and Punishment (KS2)

Half day, £3.50 per pupil

Pupils are needed to inspect the atmospheric old town jail.  Meet prisoner Charles Girdlestone to discover what prison life was like.  Find out about prison reformer Sarah Martin.  Pupils will decide if the punishment actually fits the crime.

The Tolhouse is perfect inspiration for character and story setting writing on the return to school.
