During our history week, we will be learning all about Crime and Punishment in the past and present. We will be looking at the punishments used during the Victorian era and even as far back as the Anglo-Saxons! We visited the Police Museum in Manchester city centre and we had a fantastic time. We got to look at the very first police uniform and found out who invented the police and why. We even got to try some of the police uniforms on!

Our favourite part of the trip was when we got to visit the old holding cells at the station. The museum used to be a police station in the Victorian times and they have a number of cells where they would hold up to 16 adults and children until they were charged or released. We got to go inside a cell and they even shut the door and turned off the light so we got to experience what it really would have been like to be a prisoner.
