School trip to the National Justice Museum

We are going on a school trip!

Hello Anderson class and parents


This term we are learning all about Crime and Punishment throughout history and to help with our learning we will be visiting The National Justice Museum. During our trip we will participate in the following activities:

Courtroom workshop – Court in the past: Suffragettes

In this interactive courtroom workshop, we will examine a case and then prepare and present a trial based on the evidence available by playing the roles of Judge, jury, defence, prosecution etc. At the end of the trial we will reach a verdict and discuss sentencing options

Museum workshop – Crime and Punishment through time

We will explore law-related objects and artefacts from the museum collection, engage with costumed interpreter’s, hear about historical changes in the prison system and visit key museum spaces including the dungeons, exercise yard, debtors’ cell, punishment corridor and criminal courtroom.

This will be taking place on Monday 3rd of October, and we will be traveling on the Keyworth Connection bus to and from school. We will meet at school at the normal time - children, please wear your school uniform. We will be spending the whole day there so please bring a pack lunch. The total cost of the trip will be £9. Additionally, please bring two £1 coins in an envelope which is needed for the bus. Please pay the £9 on Eduspot (link below) and then hand Miss Middleton your envelope with your two £1 coins by 26th September.

We are looking 3-4 adult helpers to join us on our day. If you think you are brave enough to visit the Galleries of Justice, please contact the school office or chat to me at drop off or pick up.

Many thanks,

Miss Middleton
