Crime and Punishment Workshop

Our interactive workshop lets your students get a taste of how crime and punishment was then, and how it is now. Albert Pierrepoint will come and tell you about his life as an executioner. He will bring along with him a selection of real working artefacts.

The students explore crime and punishment through games, exercises and activities in groups. There are plenty of props to play in and there may even be a call for some acting! There is even a chance to recreate some of the historical punishments in a safe environment. This workshop fits around your programme of study. We can give a broad overview of history or focus on select era’s that your students are already studying.

Why Do People Like To Use Us?

First of all, we take you on a journey. In addition to this we use lots props and artefacts to bring our workshops to life. The whole day will involve the children. There will be calls for discussions, acting, performing and educating – all in the same day. As a result, by the end of the day the children will be able to demonstrate a vast array of new knowledge, vocabulary and skills relating to the topic.
