Court in Session: Did the punishment fit the crime?

 In topic, we are learning about Crime and Punishment. We researched young criminals from the period to see the types of crimes and punishments there were.

Our learning question was ' Did Victorian punishment fit the crime'. There were some shocking examples of children as young as 4 serving 'hard labour' for stealing.

We then put the convicts on the stand to admit their crime before being sentenced. We could then think about whether the punishment which were handed down were fair.
