Catholic Primary School

Learning our faith, living our faith, loving our faith



As we continue to develop our historical knowledge, the children will focus on ‘Crime and Punishment.’ This topic will link with our upcoming English topics of Holes and The Highwayman.  Our learning will cover the history of crime and punishment throughout the ages (including during the Romans, Medieval times and through to the current day). We will also explore the consequences of crime. Other aspects of our learning are as follows: learning about fingerprints and how they help identify people who have committed crimes; researching crime scene jobs and how teams work together to solve crimes; and Alcatraz Island – researching the Island and what happened before it became a prison.
