We have been learning about punishment in the Victorian Times. We learnt about the Workhouse and all the hard labour that the prisoners had to do.
On Friday 4th October we learnt about Transportation when prisons were sent to Australia to serve out their prison sentence away from their families. The trip alone could take up to 6 months and often the prisoners didn't survive the journey.
We had great fun 'Hot Seating' asking each other questions about what it was like on the boat, in the Prison and what crime they had committed
