Crime and Punishment - Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Dawn Bullen 0 296

On Thursday we linked our 'Crime and Punishment' topic with the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle'. The crime that had been committed, was that the wedding cake had been stolen from the Palace and someone from Y4 was the suspect! As a class we discussed what would happen when the case went to court and the role of everyone who would be attending. The children really enjoyed been called as witnesses and being part of the jury. In groups they discussed the reasons why the suspect would be guilty and the reasons against this. The decision was very difficult to make , therefore next week there will be a 'retrial' .

This week Y4 had a fantastic day at 'The National Emergency Museum', where they learnt all about crime and punishment through the centuries. They also had the opportunity to try on a variety of outfits and compare them to what the police where today. We also looked at the equipment that is used today compared to 100 years ago and how technology has changed the way the police force is run.  In Maths we have be multiplying and dividing money and some of us also challenged ourselves to using these skills in different ways in everyday life situations. 

Afternoon with Local Community Police

This week Year Three and Four had an amazing afternoon with the local community police officers. They let us try on their uniforms and showed us all around the riot van. We learned lots about  the different kinds of jobs that the police do to keep us safe.  There really is no way you can get out of the back of the van! I tried!

Some photographs from our curriculum afternoon, where the children (Y4) were introduced to the new topic 'World Kitchen'. They really enjoyed learning about where different fruits were grown in the world and how it was transported to England for us to enjoy. Later in the afternoon the children made fruit salad from a variety of fruit, grown in different parts of the world. At the end they really enjoyed tasting what they had created.
