My summer topic this year is Crime and Punishment. I was just wondering if anyone had any interesting ideas for this topic. It will start after sats and will be the children's final topic before leaving for high school so I want to make it as fun and interesting as possible. Ideas I have so far are: WOW Week - We have a company coming in one day to do a forensic workshop, this will start with a murder/robbery and we'll be looking at fingerprints and other evidence that is collected. We'll be doing reconstructions and looking at tool impressions etc. History of crime and punishment - Looking primarily at Tudor and Victorian punishments for crimes, and what those crimes were. Escape from Alcatraz challenge - Maths/Science based challenge. Mock Trials - Using fairy tales as a starting point (eg Hansel and Gretel on trial for trapping the witch in the over, Goldilocks for trespassing/home invasion), children become defence/prosecution/witnesses/jury members. We'll do enough so that each child gets to experience the different roles. Thought this would be good for speaking and listening. Does anyone have any other interesting ideas that will get the children motivated? Our previous topics have been Britain's Got Talent and a Sports League, which the children have loved, so I don't want to let them down with the final topic!
